Overview

This is the definitive guide for everyone concerned with multiple sclerosis - those who have the disease, those who share their lives with someone who has it, and all health care professionals involved with its management. It covers a wide range of topics in a format that is familiar, accessible, and easily understood. Its question and answer format reflects the collaborative relationship between people with MS and their health care professionals. The authors of each chapter answer the questions that they have been asked repeatedly in the course of their work with MS. The book was developed under the auspices of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers, and the contributors are leading authorities in all areas of multiple sclerosis management. The questions relevant to each topic were assembled from a variety of sources, including the computerized index of all questions telephoned into the National MS Society, the questions most frequently asked of the health care professionals participating in the preparation of the book, and questions suggested by a task force of patients and family members. Each chapter contains a list of references and recommended reading for readers interested in pursuing more detailed information on a particular topic. The guide also contains a comprehensive glossary of all terms commonly used in MS management, a comprehensive list of relevant resources, and a guide to commonly used medications.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Library Journal
This book, developed under the auspices of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers and made possible by an educational grant to the consortium by Bertex Laboratories, the manufacturer of Betaseron, the first drug approved by the FDA for treatment of multiple sclerosis, represents an interdisciplinary approach to the disease. Its goal is to help those with MS and their families formulate questions to ask their healthcare providers so they can manage life with MS. Written by experts, chapters cover topics ranging from neurology and treatment to emotional, sexual, and employment issues. Introductory material is followed by a series of questions most often asked of the authors in their work with MS, as well as questions received by the Information Center at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Chapters conclude with a list of recommended readings and other available resources. Appendixes include information sheets about drugs commonly used to treat and manage MS, as well as a comprehensive glossary of terms. This work is more inclusive and comprehensive than most single-authored, consumer-oriented publications, and the authors recommend it not necessarily be read cover to cover but treated as a reference source to be referred to according to individual need. Recommended to supplement other, more traditional sources such as Louis Rosner Jr. and Shelley Ross's Multiple Sclerosis (S. & S., 1992) in consumer health collections.-Sue Hollander, Univ. of Illinois Lib. of the Health Sciences at Rockford

    THE book about MS

    I was diagnosed with MS 21 years ago and, as an avid reader, have read many books about MS, hoping to find some answers. This is it! I wish this book had been around when I was first diagnosed---it would have saved me a great deal of frustrations in dealing with the disease. I'm glad it's now published because, even after all these years of living with MS, I am constantly changing as the disease changes. This book has clear answers and tips to make life easier.
