Full Title
Predicting Work Problems and Accommodations in Employed People with Multiple Sclerosis: Impact of Conscientiousness and a Smart Phone Intervention
Description
We are looking for adults with MS who have participated in another study with our group for this study. The purpose of the study is to learn more about whether people with MS benefit from a phone app that helps teach conscientiousness.

You will participate in this study for about 12 months. You will be given a baseline assessment of cognition, personality, and work status. You will then be randomly assigned (like the flip of a coin) to be in one of two groups. One group will use a smart phone app for 3 months to help them with setting and achieving goals. The other group will not use the app. The study takes place at UB's downtown campus.

Please note that this study is only open to people who have participated in a previous study titled "Multiple Sclerosis and Vocational Accommodations" and is not open to the general public.

Compensation is available.

Technical Description

We are studying the clinical and neuropsychological factors which contribute to loss of employment in people with Multiple Sclerosis. We are also validating a phone app intervention strategy to help people with their health management and employment.
