Multiple Sclerosis: Importance of Patient-Centric Education on Healthcare Communications and Decisions

Projects In Knowledge, @Point of Care, Chronic Health Improvement Research Program Enterprises, LLC, and Stony Brook collaborated to develop a pilot educational initiative to address and improve patient-centered care, SDM processes, and symptom and wellness management in the Stony Brook MS Comprehensive Care Center setting. Training videos were implemented, and qualitative semi-structured interviews and simulation case role-play scenarios were used to assess understanding and practice behavior changes from baseline to post-educational interventions. The collaborative partnership presented these findings in a poster at CMSC 2023.
