Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, neurological disease, the onset of which usually occurs between the ages of 20–40 years. The disease results in a wide range of symptoms, but does not alter the life span substantially .Consequently the majority of people with MS (PwMS) live with the disease for most of their lives and over a period of many years experience various needs for health Purpose. The purpose of this study was to explore the perceptions of people with multiple sclerosis of a community based, group exercise programme. Method. A pragmatic programme evaluation approach using qualitative research design was adopted. Focus groups were used to gather data from 14 participants who had taken part in a RCT of community based exercise interventions for PwMS who Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a progressive demyelinating and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system (CNS) which gradually results in severe neurological :// Most people are familiar with the importance of rehabilitation following surgery, injury, or stroke.

Introduction Person-centredness is a philosophy for organising and delivering healthcare based on patients’ needs, preferences and experiences. Although widely endorsed, the concept suffers from a lack of detail and clarification, in turn accounting for ambiguous implementation and outcomes. While a conceptual framework based on a systematic review defines person/patient-centred care the power position, is generally perceived by consumers as detrimental to the optimal rehabilitation of people with disabilities. Active participation by both consumers and counselors is viewed as the most viable alternative to the traditional helping relationship. This evolved of Rehabilitation. A scale that has been used to measure domain-specific aspects of SE in people with SCI and multiple sclerosis is the University of Washington Self-efficacy Scale (UW-SES) [32, 33]. This scale was designed to measure the person’s ability to manage the consequences of their chronic health condition in their daily activities and social :// The disease-specific Multiple Sclerosis Quality of Life–54 questionnaire (MSQOL) was used to assess health-related quality of life. 21, 22 The 54 items are divided into 12 multiple-item scales and 2 single-item scales. The MSQOL item results are transformed linearly to scores of 0 to , and final scale scores are created by averaging
