Aim of the course

Rehabilitation is an important component of multiple sclerosis (MS) management. Even though the therapeutic armamentarium is continually growing, MS still represents one of the most disabling neurological disorders and it demands a multidisciplinary approach. In this context, rehabilitation plays a fundamental role in ameliorating patients quality of life by improving their independence in daily life and limiting disability during the entire course of the disease. The Preceptorship in rehabilitation will take advantage of the experience and facilities of the worldwide reference center in rehabilitation, led by Prof. Kesselring in Valens, Switzerland, to improve participants' knowledge of rehabilitation programs for MS patients.

Learning objectives
