Listening to People Affected by MS

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Listening to People Affected by MS initiative. We heard from over 6,000 Canadians about their quality of life needs, priorities and barriers. Results from the initiative can be found at mslistening.ca

What is the Listening to People Affected by MS Initiative?

This initiative was launched in order to hear from Canadians affected by MS about their quality of life priorities, needs, and barriers so that the MS Society of Canada can better inform decisions that relate to our programs, services and advocacy. We sought input in a number of ways including two on-line surveys, a poll, focus groups, key informant interviews and an environmental scan, all of which will helped us further explore aspects of quality of life and MS.

The responses we received through the Listening Initiative provided critical information about quality of life and MS. This feedback will allow the MS Society of Canada to make informed decisions related to programs, services, and advocacy.
