Recommendation ID
What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation for people with Multiple sclerosis (MS)?
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
Cognitive impairment affects 43–70% of people with MS and can affect their ability to carry out everyday activities. People with MS who have cognitive problems often engage in fewer social and vocational activities, are less likely to be in employment, can have problems carrying out routine household tasks, can have difficulties with driving and are more vulnerable to psychiatric illness. Caring for a person with MS is also likely to be more difficult if they have cognitive impairment and outcomes from research should include effect on caregivers.
