Adherence Research Study


Do you have relapsing-remitting MS? Do you choose not to take medication to prevent flare-ups? If so, researchers at UMKC and KUMC are looking for you! You are NOT required to take disease modifying treatments to be part of this study. We are interested to learn your reactions to the telephone counseling you will receive. It is hoped that this research will help us improve MS care and better understand why some choose not to take medication.
Study Requirements
  • 1 1/2 hour appointment prior to start of telephone counseling.
  • Four 20 minute telephone conversations about MS medications.
  • Completion of questionnaires at home.
Criteria for Participation
  • Diagnosed with a relapsing form of MS
  • Discontinued taking a disease modifying medication
  • Do not currently have plans to begin taking MS medications
Participants will be paid $200.
