Louisiana’s New Partners in MS Care Announced
July 24, 2013 – Partners in MS Care is a National MS Society program that recognizes and supports quality MS care. The Society believes that people living with MS receive optimal care and support when strong collaborative relationships exist between health care professionals and the Society.
Partners include health care professionals in the areas of neurology, mental health and rehabilitation, as well as sites that provide multi-disciplinary health care. Partners demonstrate knowledge and experience in MS care, and have a special interest in treating people living with multiple sclerosis.
Partners in MS Care - Centers for Comprehensive Care are led by clinicians with demonstrated knowledge and experience in treating MS. They offer and coordinate a full array of medical, nursing, mental health, rehabilitation and social services, and have a strong collaborative relationship with the Society.
We are pleased to announce Ochsner MS Clinic of New Orleans and LSU MS Clinic of New Orleans have been approved as Centers for Comprehensive Care.
In addition, Partners in MS Care - Mental Health professionals offer collaborative, demonstrated knowledge in treating chronic illness and engage in communication with other health care providers treating the patient.
We are pleased to announce Mike Chafetz, Ph.D., ABPP and neuropsychologist has been approved as a Partner in MS Care - Mental Health.
Our ultimate goal is to improve opportunities for people with multiple sclerosis to receive quality MS care and services. The National MS Society wants all parties to feel confident that the alliance we have developed will positively impact quality of care and access to care and services.
