Positive aspects during the stay at the centre?

My visit at CEMCAT was a very inspirational and rewarding experience. The stay was well organized by the CEMCAT coordinators, and I got a good overview of the organisation and activities of the centre. The primary objective of my visit was to learn from the experiences at CEMCAT with rehabilitation as a supplemental treatment of acute MS relapses, and the primary investigators of this happily shared their knowledge and experiences. This is of great value to a planned future study at the Danish MS Hospitals, also investigating the potential of multidisciplinary rehabilitation in the treatment of acute MS relapses. Moreover, future collaborations were discussed and in that sense the RIMS fellowship truly connect centres and drive the rehabilitation in MS field forward.

Any other comments on the visit?

I want to thank everyone at CEMCAT in Barcelona for hosting me – and especially the coordinators Marga Capell and Caterina Fernandez, and rehabilitation specialists Carme Santoyo, Samuel Sanchez, and Roger Meza Murillo. I also want to thank RIMS for this wonderful initiative and opportunity.
