Opportunity to let NICE hear your views about the impact of 5q SMA and who should be able to access nusinersen

12 February 2018

Please do read all the following options through carefully before you start so that you know which one(s) to complete. Each survey should take about 10 – 20 minutes to complete and needs to be completed in one go. The surveys don’t allow for breaks and should only be completed by people living in England.

Surveys A - E are for those who have not been treated with nuinersen

Survey F (see bottom of the page) is for those who have been treated with nusinersen

Survey A - This may only be completed once for each person with 5q SMA who has not been treated with nusinersen. It may be completed either by the person with 5q SMA or by the parent / carer or by both together. When collated this will give a picture of how many people there are with 5q SMA and information about their health. 

(People who complete this may also want to complete survey B or C below to give their views about the impact SMA has on their lives and what they think about access to nusinersen.)
