Cost: Purchase individual webinars for $25.

Residential Aged Care Facilities Education
When a person with MND moves into an Aged Care facility, their care needs may be quite different to those of other residents. MND Victoria Health Professionals can present an education session for Aged Care Facility staff about the specific needs of people living with MND, the supports available and, where relevant, the individual needs of their resident who is living with MND.
Bespoke Training for Organisations
Contact our Education Team to discuss your training needs and access a tailored webinar or face-to-face session.
