VAZQUEZ-GOMEZ, Lázaro Aurelio et al. Effectiveness of a strategy for the multidisciplinary follow-up to patients with multiple sclerosis. EDUMECENTRO [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.4, pp.58-74.  Epub Dec 31, 2021. ISSN 2077-2874.


health promotion is recognized as a way to achieve desirable levels of health for all humanity. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic demyelinating inflammatory disease of the central nervous system of an autoimmune nature.


to determine the effectiveness of a strategy for the multidisciplinary follow-up to patients with multiple sclerosis aimed at increasing their quality of life.


a quasi-experimental study with a before-after design was carried out with a single group in the Neurology Service of the "Arnaldo Milián Castro" Clinical-Surgical University Hospital of Santa Clara, in the province of Villa Clara, in the period from May 2017 to May 2019. Theoretical methods were used: analysis-synthesis, induction-deduction and historical-logical; empirical ones: the individual application of the questionnaire of the Perceived Quality of Life Scale and mathematical-statistical for the analysis of the data found.


all patients modified their perceived quality of life status in the components: sexual satisfaction scale, visual scale, bowel control, impact of pain and physical state towards better scores after applying the strategy. Most of the indicators evaluated by the team work offered very adequate evaluation results on the interventional process.


the follow-up strategy for patients with multiple sclerosis enabled a higher perceived quality of life in them; its effectiveness is given by the achievement of satisfactory modifications in the score of the perceived quality of life scale in all its components; as well as the indicators evaluated by the team work offer very adequate evaluation results.
