Current Research Studies: Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
The Department of Rehabilitation Medicine is currently conducting the following Multiple Sclerosis (MS) studies:
People with multiple sclerosis (MS) and spinal cord injury (SCI) often experience chronic pain. Different types of treatment that include self-hypnosis, education about chronic pain, and learning skills on how to change how a person thinks about his/her pain have been used to treat chronic pain in the general population. The purpose of this study is to see if these different treatments can help decrease pain in people with MS and SCI, and how and why these treatments are effective.
For more information, or to find out about participating in this study, please see our Studies Seeking Volunteers Section. You may also contact our research staff at at 206.221.7224 or toll-free at 1.800.570.5576.
Adapting Project Enhance, led by Ivan Molton, PhD is an evidence-based, participant-centered motivational intervention for older adults. For Project Enhance a wellness coach, typically a nurse or social worker, works with people to improve their health and wellness. In older adults, research has shown that participants in Project Enhance decrease the length of hospital stays, lower their use of psychoactive drugs, alleviate symptoms of mood disorders, and develop a sense of greater self-efficacy.
