Developing a Plan for Multiple Sclerosis is Key

Newly Diagnosed: Developing a Plan is KeyDeveloping a comprehensive plan of care, one that is not limited to multiple sclerosis, is vitally important. This should be done together between you and your healthcare providers. Such a plan includes management of overall health issues that should not be neglected. Most importantly, patients need to be very careful not to blame every symptom on multiple sclerosis. Be sure that your healthcare team (including your primary care physician and/or your neurologist) is advised of any symptoms you are experiencing, all treatments you are receiving, and any other conditions you may have.

Components of a comprehensive care plan may include the following topics, many of which are addressed on MSAA’s website as well as Multiple Sclerosis information (MSi) online educational videos and webinar series:
