The MSOC Study

Project Details

The MSOC (Multiple Sclerosis Online Course) Study is a project involving the design, development and testing of an online lifestyle intervention course for people with multiple sclerosis (MS). It was designed with consultation from the MS community and developed with the end-user in mind. A feasibility study was conducted in mid 2021 demonstrating the course was accessible and participants reported positive experiences . The course is being redeveloped to launch a large RCT in 2022 to assess effectiveness in behaviour change and health outcomes.
