Exploring Fatigue in Cancer and Multiple Sclerosis

King’s College London

 

About the study

We are inviting you to take part in some research exploring aspects of fatigue in people with long-term conditions. We are specifically focusing on Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Cancer, as many people with these conditions report high levels of fatigue.

 

What will you be asked to do?

We want to check the suitability of the materials that we plan to use in our future research. These are a set of short descriptions about every-day situations. We will ask you to read these short descriptions and then answer some questions about them. Don't worry, this is not a test of your memory test but rather how people remember certain types of information.

 

You will also be invited to complete some questions about your illness, symptoms and mood. You will also be asked to provide some basic demographic information (e.g., age, gender).

 

All of this information will be collected using an online survey and takes about 30-45 minutes to complete. You can take a short break half way through but please return to the questionnaire the same day.

 

Participation is fully confidential and your answers are anonymous.

 

Who can take part?

We are inviting anyone over the age of 18 years, with Multiple Sclerosis or Cancer to take part.

 

Who has reviewed the study?

An ethical review of this study has been carried out by London-Dulwich Research Ethics Committee.

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.


The MS People Forum is not responsible for advice or information supplied by members. We suggest you seek medical advice before trying anything.
