Multiple Sclerosis Awareness
Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Diploma
This Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Diploma course pivots around Multiple Sclerosis, often called MS in short, an enfeebling condition characterised by possible symptoms ranging from movement anomalies, especially in the limbs, to an absence of balance and sensation. MS primarily impacts the spinal cord or brain and both in certain circumstances. MS is a chronic condition with no ultimate cure. Patients with MS may have moderate to severe disabilities, and their life expectancy may be lowered. However, it may be relieving to know that MS is not fatal. Many treatment options aim toward managing symptoms, enabling patients to lead a healthy and everyday life. The UK has recorded over 100,000 individuals diagnosed with the condition. Although there is no definite age for a person to be diagnosed with MS, the trends point toward individuals between the 20s to 30s. Moreover, there is a threefold increase in the likelihood of women getting diagnosed than men.
This Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Diploma course aims to acquaint you with a deep understanding of MS and teach ways to extend your support to an individual or loved one who has fallen prey to the condition. People who are suspected of having MS should first consult their GP to rule out the possibility of other states. After running the required tests, the GP may redirect the candidate to a professional who specialises in the nervous system, called a neurologist. The neurologist may next do an MRI scan, and other procedures to rule out MS. 8 out of 10 people have relapse-remitting MS, which is characterised by new and worsening symptoms, often referred to as relapses. These symptoms usually worsen over a while, lasting weeks or, in severe cases, even months.
In the unfortunate case of an individual undergoing relapse-remitting MS over several years or decades, they may experience secondary progressive MS (SPMS). SPMS is characterised by deteriorating symptoms but without evident attacks. Nevertheless, specific individuals may be bombarded with irregularly occurring relapses. 5 in 10 people ill with relapse-remitting MS develop SPMS. Moreover, the longer an individual has this condition, the higher the risk.
At the outset, this Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Diploma course sheds light on the definition of Multiple Sclerosis, enumerates its types, states its prevalence and elucidates its diagnoses. The course goes on to delve deep into the process of diagnosing MS, the accessible treatments, resources and support.

Multiple Sclerosis affects more than 100,000 individuals in the United Kingdom alone. This course is apt for individuals serving in the health care industry, especially those who have just started to care for patients with MS. This Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Diploma course will decipher the intricacies of MS, elucidating its causes and consequences, plus ways to identify symptoms and tips for management of those symptoms.
