Attend this course to find out about the progression and treatment of a range of the most common inherited or sporadic diseases that affect the central nervous system, including Motor Neurone Disease, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and Progressive Supra-nuclear Palsy. The course highlights the particular challenges in end of life care for people with neurological conditions, which include the long duration of disease, the variability of progression, the onset of behavioural and cognitive changes, and the potential for sudden death. By the end of the course, you will be aware of all the key end of life issues facing people with neurological conditions, and be better able to support them and their families as their condition declines.
