This course will equip participants to deliver FACETS, a six week, group-based, fatigue management programme. The FACETS programme is the outcome of an MS Society funded research project that took place at Bournemouth University and Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
The outcome of the research project shows that the FACETS programme is an effective method to help people with MS manage their fatigue. The programme, incorporates ‘energy effectiveness techniques’ – like lifestyle decisions and ways of working that maximise the energy people have – alongside cognitive behavioural strategies, helping participants to learn helpful ways of thinking about fatigue. You can read more about the research results here.
The FACETS training aims to:
- equip participants to co-facilitate the six week, group-based FACETS programme using the manual and supporting resources.
- enable participants to support people with MS to manage their MS-related fatigue more effectively.
