ADAMS introduction and aims

RIMS believes that adherence is more than taking medication regularly. Adherence is about personal lifestyle goals and choices, DMD treatment choices, rehabilitation and symptomatic treatment choices, vocational choices, relationship and family choices in a setting of multiple uncertainties and risks as person with Multiple Sclerosis. Assessment of existing knowledge and experiences in adherence in a chronic disease and the development of a joint proposal by the gathered panel of experts on further actions in this field – these are the two main aims of ADAMS. A first meeting with a small group of experts within but also outside the field of MS was held on April 19th 2013 in Brussels. More activities on the topic adherence will be planned in 2014.
