Abstract: The association between employment and psychological health in adults with multiple sclerosis was examined ( N = 33 studies). Standardised mean differences (Hedges' g) between those employed and those not in the workforce were calculated. Employed peers reported significantly greater quality of life and mood, cited fewer work and multiple sclerosis-related difficulties and were more likely to adopt problem-focused coping strategies, considered to be more effective in managing specific stressors. These data are consistent with the positive by-products of maintaining work with multiple sclerosis. Further research is needed to determine the longitudinal course of coping for those who remain employed.
