Patient Resources

Turning Point helps you cope with chronic illness

Information and education about MS are important to have not only for the patient but also for his or her family. The University of Kansas Health System offers several online resources and partners with local organizations to provide patients with resources and support that will help with both care and caregiving issues.

Turning Point

The University of Kansas Health System has formed a partnership with Turning Point: The Center for Hope and Healing, a local organization that provides support for chronically ill patients and their families battling cancer, chronic heart failure, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), fibromyalgia, kidney disease, diabetes and other diseases. The organization also works with caregivers to give them knowledge, coping techniques and support beyond care traditionally provided in a hospital setting. Patients with serious or chronic illnesses will have even more services and programs that address the psychological, social, emotional and physical needs that accompany their illnesses.

Clinical trials

One of the advantages of being an academic hospital is that important and life-changing medical research goes on every day. Almost every patient at the MS clinic is given the opportunity to participate in some type of clinical trial or research. To learn more, call 913-588-1227 or toll-free at 844-323-1227.
