Jenny Freeman is the RIMS representative on the European Brain Council Project. The aim of this project is to develop a policy report for the provision of care for people with MS across Europe. It intends to drive tangible policy changes which can improve the lives of people living with MS across Europe, by building a coherent, consensus-driven policy narrative on neurodegenerative disorders across Europe, focusing upon MS. The document will focus on current priorities in MS and clarify how they can be achieved. It will map indicators, relative gaps and successes, and identify opportunities for engagement within different national contexts.
There will be several outputs from this initiative:
- A policy report – to provide a pan-European policy narrative, national data comparisons and country profiles for Denmark, Italy, Spain and Romania alongside templates for policy development in each of the 4 countries..
- An advocacy toolkit – to offer specific tools to enhance advocacy efforts in line with the policy report.
- A template for MS Brain Plans – to support national adaptations and the creation of specific and appropriate MS plans across Europe.
The project is funded by Biogen, Celgene, Merck, Novartis and Sanofi and all outputs are non-promotional
