What to expect if you participate:

  • You will be asked to complete an online survey about yourself and your MS.
  • You will be randomly selected (by chance) to receive the new online doctor-patient tool for people with MS.
  • The doctor-patient tool, MS-SUPPORT, will take about 30 minutes to complete. You don’t have to complete it all at once.
  • The tool will ask you questions about how you manage your MS, how MS affects your life, and what matters to you. It gives you personalized feedback. It creates a short summary to help you talk with your medical team. We suggest you share that summary with your provider.
  • You will be asked to complete a total of six (6) online surveys over the next year regarding your MS and use of disease modifying therapy (DMT), if any. The initial survey will take about 30 minutes, the remaining surveys will take between 5 and 15 minutes.
  • Your next online evaluation will be after your scheduled visit with your MS provider. That survey will ask about your MS and ask you to rate the quality of the conversation you had with your MS provider.
