Crisis resilience in persons with multiple sclerosis (C-RIMS)
Type of Study/Intervention
Form of MS
Relapsing remitting MS, Secondary progressive MS, Primary progressive MS, People without MS (Carers of person with MS, Healthcare professionals, MS advocates)
Community disasters, such as floods and bushfires, affect many towns and communities. The crisis can last for several months, with effects being felt for much longer. Prior preparation for a crisis can help with feelings of coping and maintaining your health during this time. There are a number of tools available to help you prepare for a crisis, but many have not been tested in a population with chronic diseases such as MS. We want to understand how we can improve one such tool, the RediPlan produced by the Australian Red Cross. In this survey we would like you to complete the RediPlan and then complete an online survey, with the option to provide more information on your experience in a focus group.
