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

Other Professional Development:
MNDAware Online Training
The MND Care website features online awareness training comprising 26 modules on MND, symptom management, and the wellbeing and support needs of people with MND and their families. MNDAware training is accessed via the MNDCare website.
Allied Professionals Forum
Annually, the MND Association of the United Kingdom in cooperation with the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations hold an Allied Professional Forum. The forum is typically held the day before the International Symposium.
The forums provide an opportunity for attendees to exchange information about good practice and to facilitate the highest standard of care for people with MND and their carers. The content of the forum presentations not only focuses on practice research but also the hands-on work involved in caring for people with MND.
