The objective of MS-Selfie is to help and empower people with multiple sclerosis (pwMS) lunderstand the issues that need to be considered when managing multiple sclerosis (MS), for example when starting, or switching between, disease-modifying therapies (DMTs), diagnosing and managing sleep problems associated with having MS, interpreting side effects of medications, etc.
Ultimately the objective of this microsite is for it to become the goto self-help site for people with MS. The site is based on the opinions of Prof G, an experienced neurologist who specialises in multiple sclerosis (MSologist), who currently works in the National Health Service (NHS) in England. Prof G hopes that after exploring this site you will have a better understanding of what is required to take control of some of the decision making around your management. Ideally, Prof G would like to empower you to self-manage your MS, hence MS-Selfie.
