This I/EP is intended for all clinicians that work with individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS).
Parenting is a significant role in life for many individuals, and the symptoms of MS present unique challenges to parents. Even though the onset of MS is during a time when individuals are often having children or are already parents of young children, there are very few resources discussing ways to support parents with MS. This I/EP is meant to be a resource for clinicians when discussing parenting with patients. While occupational therapists routinely address the role of parenting, not all parents with MS work with occupational therapists. Therefore, all health care clinicians need to be prepared to address parenting concerns within the context of MS, provide evidence-based strategies, offer beneficial resources, and refer to appropriate services. This I/EP can be used to introduce clinicians to the current evidence surrounding parenting with MS. It can also guide clinicians in supporting parents with MS by providing ideas for assessment, discussions, and intervention strategies.
