Researchers from the Augusta Multiple Sclerosis Center of the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University, under the direction of Lara Stepleman, Ph.D., are interested in exploring the impact of health literacy on emotional functioning in people living with MS. The research study survey can be accessed online at mshealthsurvey.com
This survey is open to all those who have been diagnosed with MS, are 18 years of age or older, and are able to independently or with assistance complete survey items.
In addition to basic demographic questions, participants will be asked about MS-related health, beliefs about MS, knowledge of medical and self-management interventions for treating symptoms of MS, beliefs about the efficacy of various alternative treatments, preferred means for educating one’s self about MS, and emotional health.
The survey is anonymous (no identifying information will be collected) and takes about 25-45 minutes to complete, dependent upon the number of MS symptoms being experienced. For your time, you will have an opportunity to be entered into a raffle drawing. To maintain anonymity, the contact information collected for participation in the raffle will not be linked to survey responses. The research study survey can be accessed at mshealthsurvey.com
and completed via computer, iPad, tablet, or smart phone.
