Brief summary

This research aims to investigate the impact of multiple sclerosis (MS) on language and communication skills and health-related quality of life. This study requires participants to complete an anonymous online questionnaire. The questions cover a range of topics including MS subtype, language and communication skills, wellbeing, fatigue, quality of life, social and support networks, and thinking and memory skills. The questionnaire takes about 30-45 minutes to complete. The information gathered will help us better understand how often people with MS experience communication difficulties, what these communication difficulties may be, and how they impact on health-related quality of life and everyday activities.
