Why is your research important and how will it influence the understanding and treatment of MS?
One of the most common and disabling symptoms reported by people living with MS is fatigue. MS-related fatigue can negatively impact every aspect of a person’s life, which in-turn can contribute to low mood, social withdrawal and isolation. Many strategies have been used to manage MS-related fatigue, however most have limited effectiveness. Our research is important as we are examining if ELEVIDA is acceptable, feasible, helpful and recommended by people living with MS in Australia. We are also interested to see if fatigue levels improve after participating in the ELEVIDA program. This research will guide ongoing research in finding ways to reduce the symptoms of MS-related fatigue.
