Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

Analyzing health care administrative data and findings from focus groups of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and family caregivers revealed a complex pattern of service use and need that contributes to nursing home entry for people with MS. Preventing or delaying this entry will require a multipronged approach.
