Australian MS Longitudinal Study
Type of Study/Intervention
Form of MS
All types of MS
The Australian MS Longitudinal Study (AMSLS) is not a clinical trial. It is a survey-based study of life issues, designed to more fully understand the impact of MS, including the individual and overall community impacts. The data from the AMSLS provides a regularly updated, evidence base for a number of stakeholders including health professionals, scientific and applied scientists and a specialist workforce servicing the MS community in an effort to increase our understanding of MS and improve the provision of services and advocacy for people affected by MS. Any Australian resident, with a confirmed diagnosis of MS and aged over 18 years is eligible to join the Study. For more information about the AMSLS and how to participate visit the MS Research Australia website.
If you are an Australian Resident in any State or Territory, diagnosed with MS by a neurologist and aged over 18 years, you are automatically eligible to enrol.
Anticipated start date
This study commenced in 2002 and is an ongoing longitudinal study of the impacts of MS. Many participants have been completing regular surveys since 2002, however, anyone meeting the eligibility criteria can join the study at any time.
