The Hawking Annual MND Lecture 2018: Cognitive change – Clinical implications and practical management
Wednesday 21 November 2018, 5.30pm
RCN Headquarters, 20 Cavendish Square, London W1G 0RN
This prestigious event aims, each year, to bring you the latest thinking in the field of motor neurone disease. This year the focus in on cognitive change. In recent years cognitive change has been increasingly recognised as a feature of MND. Around 35% of people with MND experience mild cognitive change, that is altered thinking and behaviour. A further 15% of people show signs of frontal temporal dementia which results in more pronounced behavioural change. These factors have implications for practitioners caring for the complex needs of people living with MND, their carers and families.
The 2018 lecture, led by Eneida Mioshi (CLAHRC EoE Deputy Director) will introduce you to her research and explore the useful practical steps that you might use in your practice to provide the best person-centred care.
It is aimed at all nurses, health and social care professionals, and students with an interest in MND and other long-term, progressive neurological conditions to hear the latest research.
