Alberta government to improve supports for MS patients

Postby Barry » Tue Nov 26, 2013 6:11 am

The provincial government will implement an official strategy for multiple sclerosis patient care, the first of its kind in Canada.

Announced Monday, Health Minister Fred Horne said the strategy "connects the dots" in the health care system so that Alberta's almost 14,000 multiple sclerosis (MS) patients can access resources and find supports more easily.

"This cuts through bureaucracy and program criteria to make it a quality of life strategy, as opposed to just a health care strategy," explained Horne, adding the strategy improves cooperation between government, community and the health system on current MS supports.

The "quality of life" sounds like an encouraging strategy. I hope they can wade thru the politics and do it.
