MS Register Sub-study:

The impact of COVID-19 in patients with MS

This substudy has been set up in collaboration with a group of Neurologists and other professionals.

A secure, anonymised electronic Case Report Form (eCRF) has been created in response to the global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. It is intended for healthcare professionals caring for patients with MS to report confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection in patients with MS.

Please use this eCRF to report any confirmed COVID19 infections in patients with MS -COVID-19 CRF:

We hope that this study will aid MS clinicians and researchers in better understanding the effect of COVID-19 on patients with MS.

This form:

  • Is for clinicians to use to report PATIENTS WITH MS AND COVID-19
  • Requires reporter's contact details and does not collect patient identifiable information
  • Takes around 5 minutes to complete

The survey results will be shared securely on request, to any clinician contributing data and summary data will be available every two weeks to the MS community.

Follow up data may be required by the MS Register Team seeking further (minimal) outcomes. Your contact details will not be used for any other reason and will not be passed on to any other parties, except members of the UK MS Register team and the COVID-19 sub-study group members.

The data will be held securely by the UK MS Register at Swansea University - Click here for gorvernance and management information.

Please email if you have any questions.

Partner Sites

For those that are partner sites, there is a form available on your Redcap eCRF so that you can upload any Coronavirus cases in consented patients.

The survey complements the longitudinal patients reporting of viral symptoms and COVID infections based at the UK MS Register. Please direct your patients to to answer PROMs.
