Multiple Sclerosis - What Are People With MS and Their Health Care Providers Really Thinking?
Date:5/27/2009

ws focused on understanding and comparing views of the current treatment landscape and the potential impact of emerging therapies, and also explored some of the psycho-social barriers that people living with MS face on a daily basis.

The survey was conducted via phone in the United States (US) by GfK Roper on behalf of the National MS Society in collaboration with EMD Serono between November 2008 and February 2009. The survey looked at neurologists (n=250), MS nurses and other HCPs (n=250) and people with relapsing MS (n=250). Following their survey, physicians were asked to recruit people with MS. Survey length averaged 19 minutes for neurologists and nurses and other HCPs, and 24 minutes for people living with MS. Statistical testing was done at a 95% confidence interval. A full methodology is available upon request.

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, progressive disease of the central nervous system (CNS) that affects approximately 400,000 Americans and as many as 2.1 million individuals worldwide. While symptoms can vary, the most common symptoms of MS include blurred vision, fatigue, numbness or tingling in the limbs and problems with strength and coordination. The relapsing forms of MS are the most common.

In 2008 alone, through the national office and its 500-state network of chapters, the Society devoted over $136 million to programs that enhanced more than one million lives.
