If you think your GP might want to learn more about MS, you could point her or him to an online learning module for primary healthcare professionals developed by the MS Society. Here is what the Society have to say about it:

An e-learning training module for GPs in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners was launched in April 2012. 

The module includes 3 x 30 minute units focused on:

The role of GPs in diagnosing MS, 

Long term outlook and management, 

The psychological and social impact of MS on the patient and their carer(s). 

The module was launched in April 2012:  

1212 GPs completed the course (data from April-Dec 2012)

 Participants complete a pre and post course assessment. This shows a 34% average improvement in knowledge as a result of completing the course. 


Pre course assessment average score: 60%
