Care Compass

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic and unpredictable neurologic disorder, with relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) being the most common form. Relapses are a defining feature of RRMS and represent episodes of neurologic dysfunction that can cause sudden and often severe worsening of symptoms, potentially leading to increased long-term disability. This article provides guidance for healthcare providers in counseling patients with MS regarding relapse management by emphasizing clear medical information, empathy, and the use of evidence-based techniques.
