Let's Talk about MS

‘In My Words’ Podcast Series

The In My Words Podcast series brings together the experiences of real patients, like Adriana, with the clinical thought of health care professionals directly to listeners to create an engaging educational experience. Learning how to manage your life after a diagnosis can be stressful and confusing, and the aim of these podcasts is to empower listeners to own their health. Jumo Health, in collaboration with MS Australia and Roche has produced a 5-episode podcast mini-series on multiple sclerosis as a part of their 'In My Words' podcast series.

Adriana discusses a variety of topics such as what MS is, the impact MS has on her life, disease management, how she tries to live a healthy lifestyle and relationship management. The podcasts also feature Belinda Bardsley, an MS nurse and the current president of the MS nurses of Australasia network, and Doctor Mike Boggild, a consultant neurologist in Townsville in North Queensland. They are both involved in caring for patients with MS and talk about the condition from the clinical perspective.

Available on the following:
