Abstract

Objective cognitive impairment may interfere with participation in social activities. Subjective cognitive impairment is also important to assess, because individuals who perceive themselves to be cognitively impaired may be less likely to participate in both home and social activities. Clinical interventions to enhance community integration in individuals with MS may benefit from addressing objective and subjective cognitive impairment by integrating cognitive rehabilitation approaches with self-efficacy-enhancing strategies.
