Multiple Sclerosis

MS Nurse Specialist

The predominant role of the MS Nurse Specialist is to support and advise persons diagnosed with MS attending our service. The MS Nurse provides support and advice throughout the disease trajectory from diagnosis onwards.

The MS nurse also provides information and education on treatments available and prescribed for persons diagnosed with MS.

She also provides information on symptom management of MS and the psychological and social impact of MS for those who are diagnosed at all disease stages.

The MS Nurse also liaises with all the multi-disciplines both within the hospital and community in order to ensure continuity of care for MS sufferers.

It is important that persons diagnosed with MS contact the MS Nurse Specialist if they are concerned about new symptoms or have a relapse of their MS.

You can contact the MS Nurses Marguerite Duggan and Lisa Buckley at (01) 2214850 or email at m.duggan@st-vincents.ie
