The RealTalk MS podcast is coming to you from the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto, Canada, where the International Progressive MS Alliance is holding its 3rd Scientific Congress. The theme of the event is Making a Difference Through Rehabilitation & Symptom Management.
Yesterday's session included a presentation on how some of the insights from stroke rehabilitation can be transferred to MS rehabilitation. There were detailed presentations on some of the key areas impacting translational strategies in progressive MS, conversations about comorbidities, cognition, exercise, and functional recovery. There were experts talking about managing fatigue, creating a greater sense of resilience, and a novel strategy for bladder management.
In this episode, we'll talk to Dr. Karen Lee, Director of Research for the MS Society of Canada, Bernadette Porter, a Consultant Nurse at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in the U.K. with an innovative approach to bladder management designed to tame UTI's, and Levie Hofstee, a tech entrepreneur who has developed a new app that will automatically – and virtually invisibly – track your MS fatigue.
We have a lot to talk about! And we're talking about it live from the International Progressive MS Alliance Scientific Congress in Toronto, Canada. So…are you ready for RealTalk MS?
