Over the past few years there have been substantial changes in our understanding and exciting developments in the management of multiple sclerosis (MS). Many clinicians will have contact with people with MS but, with increasing diagnostic and treatment complexities, MS management may be daunting or overwhelming for non-MS specialists. The Queen Square MS Centre team have designed this course to serve as a timely update, accessible to both specialists and non-specialists (including trainees, GPs and allied health care professionals). It will cover key clinical issues that healthcare professionals seeing people with MS may encounter, and provide a framework and rationale for investigation and management of people who may have, or who have an established diagnosis of, MS.

Sessions will cover the following topics:

–    Diagnosis and differential diagnosis of MS
