Podcast: Family involvement in MS care: Duty or disruption?
A diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) impacts family members and loved ones, as well as the PwMS. Family and carer support is crucial in living with a condition like MS. Join Jon Strum, Dr. Alice Laroni and Trishna Bharadia in their discussion of the role of families and caregivers in making decisions about MS care together, and how caregiver involvement can impact how satisfied PwMS are with their care.
Dr. Laroni is an actively-practicing neurologist with over 18 years of experience providing clinical care to MS patients and more than 13 years of experience in neuroimmunological research. Dr. Laroni is also an Assistant Professor of Neurology at the University of Genova.
Trishna Bharadia is a multi-award-winning health advocate and patient engagement advisor determined to raise awareness and find solutions for people living with MS. She was diagnosed with MS in 2008.
