The primary objective of the proposed research is to improve management of pain, fatigue, and depressed mood through an online platform that provides education, guidance, and skills-building exercises that are specifically tailored for people with multiple sclerosis MS. Access to rehabilitation care that focuses on symptom self-management is seriously limited for many individuals with MS due to geographical location, limited resources e.g. financial, transportation, andor disability. The objective of this proposal is to expand access to symptom self-management care to all patients with MS, with particular focus on those under-served patients with limited access to symptom management care by developing and pilot-testing a web-based symptom self-management program, called my MS Toolkit.
