As an MS Nurse, Bridie’s delivering vital specialist support every day

Bridie-Ellie-and-me-(2).jpgThroughout the pandemic, MS Nurse Advisors like Bridie continued to provide an accessible and responsive service to the MS community when it was needed the most.  

“My role here at Multiple Sclerosis Limited is Nurse Advisor. As a registered nurse, I provide specialised clinical support for people living with MS and their families. That support can be a lot of different things, including providing evidence-based advice to help people with MS manage their symptoms, and empower them to make decisions about their healthcare. A large part of my role is also offering emotional support to my clients. The pandemic of course brought unique fears to the MS community - fear of contracting COVID with MS, fear of immunosuppression, social isolation increasing.  

More of my clients missed or rescheduled medical appointments due to fear of contracting COVID. My team’s understanding of MS and MS treatments have helped us to reassure our clients, and we’ve been able to remain accessible and on hand to deliver expert advice in an incredibly challenging time. 

Everything I do is made possible by people who donate to Multiple Sclerosis Limited. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to continue empowering the MS community to live well.” – Bridie, MS Nurse Advisor
