Is the experience and expression of living with severe multiple sclerosis ethnically and culturally patterned?
Speaker: Dr Jonathan Koffman, Cicely Saunders Institute, King's College London
Abstract: Multiple sclerosis is now more common among minority ethnic groups in the UK but very little known about their experiences, especially in the more advanced stages of the disease. In this presentation we will report on an exciting mixed methods study that examined and compared the experience of those living with severe MS among the Black Caribbean and White British populations living in London. We will consider the implications of the study’s findings for clinical care.
