Multiple sclerosis is a lifelong neurological disease with far-reaching
and variable implications for patients, their families, and their social
and vocational sphere of influence. The disease course remains

to emotional and back again. This dynamic pattern of need and the
necessity for appropriate care calls for a philosophy of care that, to

symptom management and disease altering therapies have been promulgated
during the past decade based on both research and expert consensus.
Therefore, the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers has determined
that basic recommendations for care are required in multiple sclerosis.
