What factors affect the quality of life of people with MS?

About the project

MS can affect every aspect of a person’s life, from physical symptoms and social interactions to maintaining employment.

Previous research has shown that a person’s quality of life is affected by more than physical disability, but right now we don't understand which factors are the most important or if they're connected.

Our researchers will determine the factors that affect quality of life for people with MS. They will monitor people living with MS for two to three years, asking them about their physical and emotional wellbeing.

We can use this information to predict what factors and behaviours have the biggest impact on the wellbeing of people living with MS.

How will it help people with MS?

We need to understand what is important to maintain a good quality of life for people with MS to develop better services and support within our community.

The difference you can make

It is only with support like yours that we can fund projects like this and help people with MS to access the best services and support.
