Olga's current research explores the effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation as perceived by people with MS who are experiencing attention and memory problems. Cognitive rehabilitation programmes may assist in the development of independence and adjustment of individuals with MS through therapeutic activities. The aim of the PhD is to examine the delivery of cognitive rehabilitation to people with MS. The PhD examines two main questions: 1. What are the patient perspectives of the effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation interventions? 2. How much cognitive rehabilitation is delivered to people with MS nationally? This studentship is funded by the MS Society under the title: Delivering cognitive rehabilitation to people with MS, ref 8 and supervised by Professor Avril Drummond, Professor Roshan dasNair, and Dr Shirley Thomas.
