Multiple Sclerosis Research ‘Exercise and Physical Activity Study’

The Centre for Research in Rehabilitation at Brunel University would like to invite you to participate in this study as part of a PhD project. The research will be led by Andrea Stennett, Physiotherapist, under the supervision of Professor Lorraine DeSouza and Dr. Meriel Norris.

 You must be 18 years or older, have a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis and living in the community. We will be using a technique known as the Delphi Method to explore your views of exercise and physical activity. You do not have to be physically active to take part in this study.

 Your involvement is completely voluntary and would require your participation using 3 Rounds of questionnaires. We anticipate that you will have a gap of up to 2 months between each Round. Your views will be anonymous to the other participants and completely confidential.

 Ethical Approval has been obtained for this study from the School of Health Sciences and Social Care Research Ethics Committee.

 If you are interested in this research, please contact Andrea Stennett for a research pack. Please note that requesting a research pack does not oblige you to participate in the study.
