MS Matters: Are current measures of disability progression good enough?
Prof. Sven Schippling (Moderator), University Hospital Zürich, Switzerland

Patient contributor, London, UK
Are current measures of disability progression, like The Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), accurately capturing the impact of multiple sclerosis (MS) on patients’ daily lives?
Join us for the first in the CONy & Teva Neuroscience MS Matters webinar series to share your thoughts and discover those of your peers during this special interactive discussion moderated by Prof. Sven Schippling.
Prof. Schippling will discuss the suitability and completeness of measures like EDSS with Prof. Gavin Giovannoni. The pair will be joined by a patient contributor with MS to offer a valuable perspective into just how far such measures support his daily life. Engage with our expert panel through an open panel discussion where we will delve deep into this topic as we examine the gap between current clinical perspective and what is truly meaningful to the patient.
During the webinar we will:
- Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of using EDSS and other clinical measures of disability
- Gain a deeper understanding of the patient’s experience of disability measures in everyday life
- Consider how we can improve clinical practice by measuring disability progression using endpoints that are meaningful to patients’ everyday lives
