Vocational rehabilitation for MS

A Cochrane review found only limited evidence to support the use of vocational rehabilitation for people with multiple sclerosis. Just two studies were suitable for inclusion; both were from the US, but neither was of good methodological quality. One study focused on job retention and the other on job re-entry. The data were unable to support or refute the effectiveness or cost effectiveness of the interventions and the reviewers conclude that there is a lack of relevant randomised and clinically controlled trials.
