Trust in us to support you in your role as a healthcare professional.
Training health professionals in mental health
With funds raised from the 'MS Trust...in us' campaign the MS Trust will develop new educational material around mental health, to be taught during our one week residential training for health professionals. Our mental health education will further equip you with the additional tools and information you need to give people with MS the most up-to-date mental health support.
The MS Trust provide a week-long residential course for new in post MS specialist nurses, therapists and other health professionals who specialise in supporting people with MS, called the Development of Multiple Sclerosis Care and Management for Specialists.
Advanced MS Champions
We want to support MS healthcare services by funding more Advanced MS Champions to support people with advanced MS in communities across the UK. We aim to alleviate the pressures placed on MS services by Covid-19 by funding these positions. Nicola, an Advanced MS Champion funded by the MS Trust, tells us more about her work in the video below.
"I like the fact I can advocate for patients who feel like they may well have been left behind, and make sure that they get equal care in the area." - Nicola, Advanced MS Champion
MS Specialist Nurses
Trust in us to support MS specialist services by funding even more MS Specialist Nurses, who will be placed in NHS hospitals in the areas where people with MS need their support the most. MS Specialist Nurses are vital in helping people manage life with MS, offering help with life-changing treatment and symptom management.
See an example of the real difference health professionals like you make to the life of someone with MS.
"I am going through depression as well at the same time [as having MS], so my MS Nurse has helped me and she has said 'I am there for you'." - Fahmeeda, person living with MS
