Researchers seek MS participants for online survey


University of Melbourne researchers are seeking people with multiple sclerosis for an online study looking into the relationship between quality of intimate relationships, acceptance of diagnosis, self-concept, physical self-concept and mental health outcomes in those with MS. The researchers seek a deeper understanding about the social psychological effects and adjustment factors of living with MS.

The study requires participants with multiple sclerosis to complete an online survey. The total time commitment is not expected to exceed 30 minutes.  Demographic questions include participants’ age, gender, marital status, employment status, time since first MS diagnosis, and whether they are taking any disease modifying medication for MS symptoms or any medication for a mental health problem. A number of additional questionnaires will be used to assess the variables of interest. The surveys are anonymous. Personal identification data will remain confidential.

The findings may help future MS research, policy, health services, and clinical practice with specific targeted interventions. The results may contribute to improved outcomes and quality of life for those with MS.
