MS Nurse Club - how does it work?

MS Nurse Club is a microsite within the EXCEMED website. The content and activities of the MS Nurse Club are guided by ‘MS nurse ambassadors’ who form the editorial board. The editorial board will also contribute regularly ensuring that the club remains focused on your priorities. For any additional information, please contact info@EXCEMED.org

 

Editorial board

Because it is important that the MS Nurse Club provides information and learning activities of the highest possible standard, it is being guided by an editorial board. Two of the key members are the MS Nurse Club Ambassadors, Roberta Motta and Colleen Harris.

She represents the Italian MS Society on the "Italian Multiple Sclerosis Nurses Society". Now she conducts research regarding the management of urinary dysfunction through the pelvic floor rehabilitation. She is a member at large of the board of IOMSN.

Hüseyin Hüseyin is currently Chair of the United Kingdom Multiple Sclerosis Specialist Nurse Association (UKMSSNA). UKMSSNA is the professional membership organization for Clinical Nurse Specialists in multiple sclerosis, and provides support and information for other health and social care professionals with an interest in the care of people with MS in the United Kingdom.

Colleen, along with several of her MS nursing colleagues from North America, Europe, and Australia, was involved in the creation of the International Organization of MS nurses (IOMSN) and is one of the past presidents of this organization. She has been active in committee and project work with the Consortium of MS Centers (CMSC) for 25 years and was president of this organization from 2007-2009.
