Multiple Sclerosis Research Study


Monday February 26 2018 11:53 AM

Participants wanted – investigating the role of self-perceptions in adjustment to multiple sclerosis. 

Sophie Day, Trainee Clinical Psychologist at the University of Sheffield (United Kingdom) invites individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) to take part in a study looking at the role of self-perceptions in adjustment to MS. Some of the topics discussed in the questionnaires include current experiences of stress, the impact of MS on various areas of life, your self-perceptions, and perceived ability to cope with the difficulties associated with MS. 

The study consists of two parts and requires you to complete a questionnaire at two time-points. By following the link below, you will be directed to a series of questionnaires, which should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. You will be invited to complete the second part six weeks following the first questionnaire. 

Upon completion of the second part of the study, you will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Amazon voucher or equivalent in your currency. The prize draw will take place in June 2019.

The quality of this project has been reviewed and approved by the University of Sheffield’s Research Ethics Committee.

I took part in the first part of this survey and found the questions were very useful as they made you think hard about how ms impacts your life. Would recommend people with ms take part and in hindsight it may be useful if a partner/family member/friend sat in and saw the questions. Looking forward to the second part.
