The problem of pressure sores in multiple sclerosis and severe disability

Chapter

Summary

The Multiple Sclerosis Society has the twin aims of research and welfare. Complaints about the care of multiple sclerosis patients in hospitals, and elsewhere, led the Society to set up a working party to investigate the problem of pressure sores. It was concluded that patients with multiple sclerosis were more susceptible to sores for intrinsic reasons, but there were also many other factors contributing to the development of pressure sores. The Society has attempted to improve the situation by preparing a film and by education of both doctors and nurses in the problems of the multiple sclerosis patient.
