MS fatigue research
Rona Moss-Morris, Professor of Psychology at Kings College London gave TiMS a presentation on her current research project, which aims to provide more definitive guidance as to which exercise and behavioural interventions are effective for fatigue in people with MS. Her review has shown that energy conservation techniques have only a small effect on fatigue and that exercise (especially balance) and CBT appear to be more effective. Rona is conducting some research on this and anyone interested in finding out more or being part of the pilot should contact her on email@example.com (link sends e-mail)
