I am studying which multiple sclerosis treatments are associated with better quality of life and psychological well-being. I am using data from a prospective national cohort of multiple sclerosis patients in combination with high quality prospectively collected data on patient reported outcomes from a nationwide observational drug trial in multiple sclerosis (the CombatMS study).
