Multiple sclerosis (MS) involves an immune-mediated process in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. The exact antigen — or target that the immune cells are sensitized to attack — remains unknown, which is why MS is considered by many experts to be “immune-mediated” rather than “autoimmune.”
In this practical course you will gain an understanding of MS, the specific difficulties that can arise from MS and explore coping strategies for caring for someone with MS.
You’ll gain the knowledge, practical skills and confidence you need to care for someone who suffers from MS.
This course is delivered as a three hour workshop.
