The focus of my PhD was the integration of a computerised cognitive screening test into several multiple sclerosis outpatient clinics around Australia. My aim was to determine how the tests could be used in hospitals and if people living with multiple sclerosis enjoyed doing the tests and found them interesting. I also investigated if the tests could measure changes in memory and the speed that people with multiple sclerosis can process information. I found that the tests were very practical and easy to use; and were sensitive to changes in memory and speed of thinking in people with multiple sclerosis.
