People living with multiple sclerosis are invited to participate in this online survey.
The purpose of this study is to identify how people living with MS determine whether they have benefited meaningfully from rehabilitation for walking impairments and to gain insight into how individuals with MS make decisions about their treatment options.
This is a research project being conducted by Prue Plummer, PhD, PT, a clinical researcher and Associate Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Completion of this survey should take approximately 15 minutes.
Your participation is completely voluntary. You may decline to take part or exit the survey at any time. You are also free to decline to answer any particular question, if you wish.
