Survey for health professionals experienced in the care of people with PPMS

MS Ireland would like to invite relevant health professionals to participate in our web-based survey as part of a European study "Needs of People with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis" (NIPS). The study is led by the University of Lübeck in cooperation with the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg and partners from the Czech Republic, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and the UK. The NIPS study is funded by the European Research Network: "Rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis" (RIMS) (

What is the aim of this study?

About 15% of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) suffer the primary progressive form of the disease (PPMS). However, little is known about the actual needs of people with PPMS. To obtain a broad overview of the needs of people with PPMS, we are conducting a web-based survey with health professionals (both medical and therapists). 

The results of the study will contribute to a better understanding of the needs of people with PPMS, enable an international comparison across countries, close research gaps, and could be used to develop information and rehabilitation strategies for people with PPMS.
