This study is a randomized controlled trial and compares two approaches to helping people living with MS manage their pain, fatigue, and depressed mood. This study is carried out entirely by telephone. There is no need to travel and participants may live anywhere within the United States. Self-management approaches have been shown to help people with other chronic conditions (such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease) reduce their symptoms and improve their lives. The purpose of this study is to see if these self-management interventions, when delivered by telephone reduce pain, depressed mood, and/or fatigue as well as the negative effects of these symptoms in persons with MS.
The enrollment status for this study is currently closed.
