LiveWiseMS: A New Online Resource for People Living with MS

A new online resource, LiveWiseMS.org, aims to raise awareness about multiple sclerosis (MS) and provide patients and caregivers information about the disease’s symptoms and conditions. The platform, developed by the International Organization of Multiple Sclerosis Nurses (IOMSN), hopes to promote healthy living and improve quality of life for MS patients and their families.
“LiveWiseMS is a ‘high level’ educational experience for all those affected by multiple sclerosis providing knowledge and expertise in one location,” June Halper, executive director of IOMSN and CEO of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers, said in a press release.
The goal is to make it easier for the public to research current information on symptoms and symptom management. LiveWiseMS resources include educational videos, graphics and patient summaries — taken from IOMSN peer-reviewed medical articles — that offer practical and direct information on how to manage life with MS. Other resources include “patient template letters” for patients wishing to contact health insurance companies or elected officials.
