Report Of Latest EMSP Conference, Noordwijk, November 2007 Reflects Progress Made In The Endorsement Process Of The "Code" And Consensus Papers

Main Category: Multiple Sclerosis
Article Date: 19 Apr 2008 - 1:00 PDT
The Noordwijk Workshop was organised to focus on the development of lobby strategies and tools to implement the "Code" on national level. Having obtained political endorsement of the "Code" and its Consensus Papers by the European Institutions, the Noordwijk objective for EMSP (European Multiple Scleroris Platform) was to translate what has been achieved on European level into national legislation and daily practice. The report which is now available covers the promotional aspects of the "Code", the MS Barometer and some new tools to be used on national level (f.i. for taking advantage of media campaign).

Member societies will receive a printed copy of the report while Noordwijk participants and MS supporters can print from the site.
