Abstract

There is increasing interest in wellness programs among health care providers and consumers. A unique intervention program was developed to promote wellness for women with multiple sclerosis (MS). Key processes include: provision of accurate knowledge that is specific to health promotion within the context of MS; enhancement of self-efficacy for health behaviors and individualized goal setting and monitoring. Participants have reported positive changes as a result of this two-phase (knowledge/skill building classes and telephone follow-up) intervention.
