On Friday 1 October, MS-UK will present an information session from researchers at King’s College London on fatigue, the latest research and management strategies.

 

Here is the information about MS-UK about the event:

‘We are pleased to be welcoming Dr Alicia Hughes, who is a health psychologist and researcher from King’s College London where Dr Hughes conducts her research to support people with long-term conditions such as MS.

In this information session, Dr Hughes will talk about fatigue in MS and present the latest research on its causes. This will include a discussion on some evidence-based strategies to help people with MS manage fatigue in everyday life. Dr Hughes will also tell us about the current online intervention from The FLEX Project which focuses on fatigue management for people with MS and will also let you know how you can get involved with the research.

The FLEX project is a series of self-guided online sessions, designed to increase brain flexibility through repeated practice. The aim of the study is to see how the brain deals with or processes information and whether training the brain in more flexible processes is helpful for people with fatigue. To find out more about The Flex Project, please see their blog for MS-UK (www.ms-uk.org/blog-ms-and-fatigue-can-training-brain-help).
