Abstract

Background and Aim
Neuromuscular disorders (NMDs) are a heterogeneous group of acquired and inherited conditions affecting the neuromuscular system1. Most NMDS are progressive and incurable and are associated with many adverse psychosocial outcomes, such as reduced quality of life (QoL) and well-being2. Previous research has consistently found that psychosocial factors are better predictors of QoL than physical impairment in adults with NMDs3,4. A systematic review on the effectiveness of psychosocial interventions for improving QoL and well-being is therefore required.

Aim – To systematically review the literature on the impact of psychosocial interventions on QoL and wellbeing in adults with neuromuscular disorders
