Abstract

Patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) experience a high level of uncertainty and face serious difficulty in coping effectively with their conditions. We compared the rate of uncertainty and coping strategies of women patients in members and nonmembers of peer groups. Our results showed that uncertainty level for patients who are members in peer groups was less than that of the nonmember patients in peer groups. Moreover, we observed that people who are members in peer groups employed problem-oriented coping strategies more than the nonmember patients in the peer group.
