FACETS is a group-based face-to-face fatigue management programme for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) – a neurological condition which affects the central nervous system. Fatigue is one of the most common and debilitating symptoms of MS with its invisible nature making it difficult to understand and recognise.
FACETS has progressed through a national multi-centre randomised controlled trial funded by the MS Society, with results showing improvements in fatigue severity and self-efficacy at four months and additional improvements in quality of life at one year. To date, over 1,500 people with MS in the UK have attended the programme since it was first launched.
If you’ve previously attended a FACETS programme then we’d love to hear from you. We’d be particularly interested in finding out if FACETS has impacted on your life and your management of fatigue since you completed the programme. This will help us to measure the impact of the programme.
I’m interested in getting in touch – what do I do next?
If you’d like to provide us with information concerning the impact of FACETS on your life and management of fatigue, then please contact the MS research team at Bournemouth University who will be able to arrange a convenient time to talk to you or alternatively send you a short testimonial form to complete.
