FACETS (Fatigue: Applying Cognitive behavioural and Energy effectiveness Techniques to lifeStyle) is a group-based face-to-face fatigue management programme for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) – a neurological condition which affects the central nervous system. Fatigue is one of the most common and debilitating symptoms of MS with its invisible nature making it difficult to understand and recognise.
FACETS has progressed through a national multi-centre randomised controlled trial funded by the MS Society, with results showing improvements in fatigue severity and self-efficacy at four months and additional improvements in quality of life at one year.
To date, over 1,500 people with MS in the UK have attended the programme since it was first launched.
If you’ve previously attended a FACETS programme then we would really like to hear from you. We are particularly interested in finding out how FACETS has impacted on people’s lives and their management of fatigue since completing the programme. This will help us to measure its impact.
