New article in Patient Education and Counseling co-authored by David Meads and Ed Webb

Ed Webb and David Meads have contributed to a new paper entitled Impact of Communication on First Treatment Decisions in People with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis, with Ana Mazano from Leeds’ School of Sociology and Social Policy as first author.

This article uses qualitative methods to investigate how communication affects people with MS’ experiences of diagnosis and making decisions about their treatment. It is part of the wider CRIMSON project funded by the MS society, which includes two forthcoming discrete choice experiment studies, as well as a patient decision aid led by Prof Hilary Bekker.

It is hoped that this article and the wider project will help patients experiences and make more informed treatment decisions.
