We ask that all new members complete a preliminary survey when they first register. The instrument we use for the MS community is the Multiple Sclerosis Impact Scale (MSIS) developed by Dr. Hobart. We have also added questions about your disorder, treatments you've tried and how well they worked. Complete the Survey.
Preliminary MS Survey
The preliminary questionnaire you filled out assesses the physical and psychological impact of your disorder. To see your own results type your ID into the box below the graph on the right. The scale was developed by Dr. Jeremy Hobart and colleagues in 2001 and has been used in many clinical studies. Your results can be compared to the large sample (703 people) of MS patients reported in the original publication. Until more people complete the scale at Mendus it is likely that our average will not match Hobart's.
