Active Participatory Health Monitoring in people with Multiple Sclerosis to improve treatment outcomes (Active-MS)

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

The proposed research involves three large Multiple Sclerosis (MS) care centres in Melbourne and Monash University. The aim of the study is to investigate if active patient self-monitoring at home, using smartphone APPs, after starting or changing an MS treatment can determine good or poor treatment response early after treatment start. Approximately 200 Patients will undertake monthly active self-monitoring using online testing platforms for 12-24 months.

It is hoped that the outcomes of this research will assist people with MS and their care teams to optimise treatment choice quickly and efficiently, to ensure that people with MS maintain the best quality of life and productivity.
