MS Advisory Panel

Read the Multiple Sclerosis Advisory Panel Recommendations.

In July 2014, the Government of Saskatchewan appointed an 11-person advisory panel to recommend options for improving MS care, education and research in the province. Panel members included MS patients and advocates, researchers, medical specialists, and a representative from the Office of Disability Issues.

The panel reviewed the status of these areas and canvassed input from people living with MS, those in health care and those involved in MS research, to identify gaps and opportunities for the future.

In February 2016, Health Minister Dustin Duncan officially received the panel's recommendations, for consideration in planning improvements in care, research and education. He also indicated that government will move forward on two recommendations: the establishment of an advisory council to generate discussion and explore options for action on degenerative neurological diseases; and the creation of a registry of Saskatchewan people diagnosed with MS, which will be a critical tool to facilitate MS research, and to monitor and improve patient care.
