Why personalised treatment in MS?

Posted on 5 January 2019 in

We believe that shared decision-making between our patients and our team is the best pathway to an optimal treatment plan. Everyone’s situation is unique, and we know the best approach is one that is tailored to each individual’s specific needs and experience. This is known as ‘personalised treatment’, or ‘person-centred care’ – and for us it comes as standard practice.

There are scientific reasons for this approach too including the complexity of MS’s genetic make-up, the researched variability of individual response to treatments. The evidence from clinical trials around how safe and effective a treatment is uses a group model but treatments must be made on an individual basis, and this calls for a personalised medicine approach.
