Abstract

The present research attempts to approach a complex concept. The quality of life of multiple sclerosis patients. A literature review was conducted. Based on the finding, it seems that the quality of life for multiple sclerosis patients is influenced by many factors such as self-confidence, which is a direct result of selfability and mobility, the stage of disease, the social relations as experienced by the patients and the risk of sudden substantial of health deterioration. In addition, telemedicine applications may help either the patients or the health professionals to manage better the provided quality of life to multiple sclerosis patients.
