The Canadian survey of health, lifestyle and ageing with multiple sclerosis: methodology and initial results.

Ploughman M, Beaulieu S, Harris C, Hogan S, Manning OJ, Alderdice PW, Fisk JD, Sadovnick AD, O'Connor P, Morrow SA, Metz LM, Smyth P, Mayo N, Marrie RA, Knox KB, Stefanelli M, Godwin M - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: Older people with MS were less likely to engage in regular physical activity (26.7%) compared with typical older Canadians (45.2%).Despite barriers to participation, we were able to recruit and gather detailed responses (with good data quality) from a large proportion of older Canadians with MS.The data suggest that this sample of older people with MS is less likely to be employed, are less active and more disabled than other older Canadians.

BMJOPEN2014005718F4: Frequency of Frenchay Activities Index score categories.

Mentions: Respondents were categorised by the level of disability based on results of the Barthel Index (figure 3).18 We measured activity and participation using the FAI which is divided into the household (domestic) activity, leisure activity and outdoor activity (figure 4). Nearly half (50.6%) of the sample frequently participated in household activities but only 13.5% and 27.9% reported that they frequently engaged in leisure activities and outdoor activities, respectively.
