For this special edition of Nurse On the Move
, we are featuring Lori Mayer, DNP, MSN, RN, MSCN, an MS-certified nurse and editorial board member of LiveWiseMS.org
. LiveWiseMS launched in December of 2016, and is a site dedicated to supporting patients with MS, their caregivers, and health care providers.
Our own senior editor, Kim Fryling-Resare
, joined LiveWiseMS to offer her technical skills as their web editor, but also as the voice and face of the site. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis
in 2003 and has dedicated part of her life to supporting patients like herself. She recommended that I speak with Mayer, who holds a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree and is the director of Medical Research Services for Central Texas Neurology Consultants/Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Clinic of Central Texas, as well as a chair for the IOMSN Research Committee, and member of the editorial board of the International Journal of MS Care.
Listen to our conversation to learn more about what an MS nurse is, how to create a nursing care plan for an MS patient, and to discover what LiveWiseMS.org is all about.
