How can people find out about taking part in MS Research?
I have an acquaintance with M.S and they have asked me what I know about any research. They have mentioned that they feel abandoned because they are at an advanced stage. I can’t say I would feel qualified to advise on an particular ongoing trials, given that neurology appointments are infrequent and particularly with lack of M.S nurses, I was wondering if anyone had experience of GPs promoting and informing patients about relevant trials. I have heard about some GPs being very research active and even promoting their participation in research through ‘advertising’ at the surgeries. I think it is important for patients to learn about research through appropriately qualified people, I am unfortunately at a loss to know what to say to her about this.
