MSNZ KIP Publication

This is a free at-home educational series for people newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, their families and support network.

Knowledge is Power was first developed in the USA and was written by highly regarded professionals who know about MS and the effect it can have on your life and the lives of those around you. The programme has been reviewed and adapted by MS Australia and MSNZ has reviewed it for New Zealand.

Being newly diagnosed with a condition like MS can be difficult and stressful time for all those affected.  You, your family, friends and colleagues may know very little about the disease, or may know enought to be overwhelmed and frightened by this new development in your life.  There is a lot of information to take in.

Knowledge is Power makes it easy for you to learn about MS and how it can affect your life and the lives of those around you.  We have divided the information into 10 easy-to-read parts.

The series provides up-to-date facts about many aspects of MS and is designed to give you information about how to deal with one of the greatest challenges that MS presents-the unpredictability and uncertainty of what might happen i the future.

Knowledge is Power will be distributed by your regional society and covers:
