Cognitive diagnosis and management in multiple sclerosis

Cognitive impairment is common in multiple sclerosis (MS), causing significant social, emotional, and vocational disability. Accurate and early diagnosis of this impairment is necessary to inform patients, track disease progression, identify treatable contributions to cognitive dysfunction, and to direct rehabilitation. Our research is focused on developing new clinical methods for diagnosing and managing cognitive impairments in MS. Based in the MS Cognitive Unit at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, we collaborate with neurologists, psychiatrists, and nurses to answer clinically translatable research questions and improve patient care.
