MSAA Publishes Two New Resources for the MS Community
Understanding Progression in MS is a booklet designed to help people with MS and their loved ones better understand what is happening when progression in MS occurs. This publication provides a number of treatment options – from the newest approved disease-modifying therapy to symptom management and wellness strategies. Information featured in the booklet includes:
- An overview of MS, giving background information and details on types of MS
- An overview of progression in MS, how it is thought to develop, and how it is evaluated
- Treatment options, noting how treating inflammation differs from treating progression
- Symptom management, with detailed information on several prominent symptoms
- Strategies for healthy living with progressive MS
The MS Relapse Toolkit is a useful spiral-bound resource that provides a great deal of information on why relapses occur and what people living with MS can do in advance to prepare for unexpected flare-ups in disease activity. The MS Relapse Toolkit features:
Informative details on relapses and symptoms
- Checklists to share with your healthcare team and family
- Topics to discuss with your healthcare team
- Planning ahead for a possible relapse
- FDA-approved and experimental treatment options
- Crossword puzzle with relapse-related terminology
Both publications were created to help the MS community better understand different aspects of the disease and we hope you find them helpful and informative!
