Description:
The starting point for the work of the Multiple Sclerosis Society is the needs of people with MS. The research project which has led to the production of this report is no different. If the Society is to plan and organise its services in an efficient manner, and to lobby for adequate service provision, then it is important to have sound information about the situations in which people with MS live, their perception of their needs and how they can be met. A survey such as this has not been undertaken in the Republic of Ireland before. This particular study was carried out in the Southern Health Board region of Counties Cork and Kerry. It has brought together a large body of information concerning the 260 people with MS interviewed. The information covers a wide range of issues, much of it of a type not previously gathered. This report is, therefore, of major importance for people with MS in Cork and Kerry. However, it is also of much wider significance. Much of the information gathered and recommendations made are of relevance to people with MS in the rest of Ireland and much of it is of relevance to Irish people with other physical disabilities generally.
