The purpose of this study was to create an understanding and describe occupational therapists experience and reasoning about motivating people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) to activity and participation in daily life.A qualitative approach was chosen to explore the purpose of the study. Data was conducted through semi-structured interviews with six occupational therapists in two different organizations. The data collected was analyzed based on a qualitative content analysis resulting in three categories: To facilitate the execution of the activity; Setting goals with the client; To inform, validate, and to create a relationship.The result showed that motivation to participate in the activity may vary depending on what people with MS themselves consider to be important, their conditions and how they can perform their activities. It also emerged how important it is to have an agreement with people affected by MS in order to create a good partnership and together work towards the same goal. Further, the results showed that to inform, validate and create a good relationship leads to more easily created motivation in people with MS regarding participation in activity.By meeting the person in an educational manner develops an understanding of the thoughts, feelings and behavior that comes from the stressful situation that the disease creates.
