The WELL MS study

Project Details

The WELL MS (WEb-based LifestyLe intervention) study plans to develop an app for people with MS to lead them through the lifestyle changes found to be associated with better health outcomes, in a randomised controlled format, monitoring lifestyle behaviours and how they change and changes in health outcomes. With collaborations from Computer Science and Chronic Disease researchers, and with the help of a PhD student, we will analyse relevant literature, develop an app based on best evidence, and enrol participants online to the active lifestyle modification arm or a standard treatment arm.

This study, if it proves possible to recruit and retain participants, should inform secondary preventive strategies that are suitable for incorporation in MS management.
