Medication Beliefs in MS
Do you have relapsing-remitting MS? Do you choose not to take medication to prevent flare-ups? If so, researchers at the Kessler Foundation Research Center are looking for you! You are NOT required to take disease modifying treatments to be part of this study. Instead, we are interested to learn your reactions to telephone counseling you will receive.
It is hoped that this research will help us improve MS care and better understand reasons some patients with MS choose not to take medication. All participants will undergo a baseline evaluation consisting of pencil-and-paper tests and questionnaires lasting approximately 1? hours. Following this, you will complete five 20 minute telephone conversations about MS medications. Finally, you will be asked to complete additional questionnaires at home at the completion of the study. You will be compensated $200 for your time. To be eligible, participants must: (1) be diagnosed with a relapsing form of MS; and (2) have discontinued taking a disease modifying medication. If you are interested in participating in this study and meet the above criteria, please contact Lauren Strober, Ph.D. at 973-324-8459 OR Juliane Armstrong, B.S. at 973-324-8457
