Development of an Arabic adaptation of the Modified Fatigue Impact Scale

Takeaway

  • The Arabic adaptation of the Modified Fatigue Impact Scale (A-MFIS) has high reliability and validity to assess fatigue in people with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Why this matters

  • Fatigue is a common symptom in people with MS, and the MFIS is an accepted assessment used to measure fatigue in English-speaking populations.

  • An Arabic adaptation of the MFIS has not been studied, and understanding this tool may lead to improved clinical outcomes in Arabic-speaking people with MS.
