Throughout the day you will follow Adam, a person living with MND, and his family’s journey with MND. In groups, led by experts representing the MDT, you will consider how to effectively approach the sometimes challenging process of advance care planning.
With national colleagues you will discuss and explore the significant things health and social care professionals, Adam, and his family might want to talk about at different stages in his disease progression. You will reflect on how you can best encourage and support the crucial thinking and decision making needed to ensure that best care takes place.
There will also be practical and discussion sessions during the day on:
- PEG and RIG insertion
- respiratory equipment
- equipment solutions
- safe exercise for people living with MND
- communication aids
- syringe drivers.
