Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This poster explores the HRQOL of youth with MS, as measured by the KIDSCREEN27. Findings indicate a relatively robust HRQOL in a North American sample of 32 children and adolescents, however the potential need for OT program development in specified subgroups may exist. This information is important as we work to expand our role in health and wellness, potentially by helping children manage chronic illnesses such as MS.
