Our Principles

We work for people affected by multiple sclerosis, to improve their lives.  These are our principles:

  1. MS was established by people living with multiple sclerosis, families and carers to represent people living with multiple sclerosis their families and carers.
  2. MS's role is to listen to and support people living with multiple sclerosis, their families and carers.
  3. MS responds to emerging issues affecting people living with multiple sclerosis appropriately and sensitively taking into account medical, organisational, social and other related considerations.
  4. MS does not give medical advice but refers people living with multiple sclerosis to their health professionals for medical advice.
  5. MS will provide service delivery support, endorse and, in some instances, provide disease specific, non-medical treatments to deal with the symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
  6. MS aims to be a trusted source of information on multiple sclerosis and ensures that this information is:
    • evidence based
    • supported by ongoing research
    • useful and beneficial to people living with multiple sclerosis
  7. MS is not a research agency but works closely with and supports the work of MS Research Australia.
  8. MS liaises with MS Research Australia, Multiple Sclerosis Australia (representing all state MS organisations) and its members and Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) to obtain accurate information on new and emerging developments/treatments in order to respond in a timely, appropriate and effective manner.
  9. Scientific and medical research responses by MS will rely upon strong research governance processes.
  10. MS will consider support for national policy positions taking into account assessments by MS Australia and MS Research Australia.
