Living with multiple sclerosis (MS) comes with its unique challenges, but being prepared for your visits with your neurology team can make a significant difference in managing your condition effectively. In this webinar, we’ll help MS patients and their support partners understand the important things to do for a good neurology appointment. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just found out you have MS or if you’ve been dealing with it for a while; this talk will give you useful tips to improve your healthcare visits. We’ll talk about what to bring, how to manage your time, asking the right questions, keeping track of your symptoms, talking effectively with your doctor, the role of your support partner, and keeping track of your medical records.
Please note: Some of the content in this webinar is specific to patients at the Rocky Mountain MS Center at University of Colorado. However, much of the information and suggestions provided here are universal and should prove helpful regardless of where you receive your MS care.
