Fatigue is a common symptom affecting the functional capacity and quality of life of MS patients. The pilot project will study the use of digital therapy for the self-management of fatigue among MS patients. The digital therapy is based on activity planning, where patients use a mobile application to learn to assess the factors that affect their coping and thus better deal with their symptoms. The aim is to strengthen patients’ experience of managing their own coping, facilitate communication between patients and healthcare professionals and optimise the overall treatment of multiple sclerosis.
