    • Health & Fitness

Dr. Lars Hvid explains the scope and projects of the Rehabilitation in MS (RIMS) network for best practice and research.
You can find all questions and soon the transcript of the episode on the blog: https://ms-perspektive.com/36-lars-hvid



Today I talk to Dr. Lars Hvid from Aarhus University in Denmark about his role as Communications Officer for RIMS – the Rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis Network. It was originally focused on Europe to share best practice and research findings on the symptomatic treatment of MS. However, it is increasingly becoming an international network as the need for rehabilitation is universal. After a general overview, we will go into more specific details, such as the different stakeholders (SIGs) and how collaboration takes place and how patients can benefit from the research results.

Introduction – Who is Dr. Lars Hvid?

Dr. Lars Hvid: I’m an Associate Professor at Aarhus University in Denmark, working in the exercise biology department. I work together with Professor Urlik Dalgas if people know his name. We mostly work on Exercise and MS at Aarhus University. In addition to that, I’m also a senior researcher at the Danish MS Rehabilitation Hospitals. So these are two hospitals we have in Denmark where you can be referred to as an MS patient and go and receive multidisciplinary rehabilitation, depending on whatever goals and aims you have. So that’s where I work now. My background is I’m an exercise physiologist. So I started working a lot with some of the exercise studies, started working in aging research, and then in 2017, I moved into MS research. That’s the only thing I work on these days, that is MS.




How and where can interested people follow your research activities?

Dr. Lars Hvid: Yeah, well, of course, we have the RIMS web page called EURIMS, eurims.org. That’s one place you can see some of the information. We also have a Twitter or X account, X or Twitter account, where you can follow the RIMS organization. We try to post a lot of information about the meetings, the SIG meetings, the webinars, and whatever we are doing. We have a LinkedIn profile as well. The information on LinkedIn and X are overlapping. Some of them are the same, but these are the platforms that we try to communicate on. So you can easily follow us there.
I also have a LinkedIn profile and an X profile if you want to follow what I’m doing specifically, but for the RIMS, you can go to the webpage there‘s a link in the top left corner where you can click on the Twitter or X or the LinkedIn logo.

Is there anything else you would like to share with the listeners?

Dr. Lars Hvid: No, but I think a podcast like this is quite important because you target the audience that is the key audience, which are the patients, of course. But of course, it could also be researchers and practitioners, who do all they can to help to try to do research or practical stuff that are of benefit to MS patients. I think the dialogue between researchers, practitioners, and patients is the key to advancing even more in the comin
