  • 6th National MND Conference attended by 180 health professionals
  • New MND Australia website
6th National MND ConferenceIn the past year we have focused on strengthening MND Australia’s position as foremost provider of trusted and evidence-based information for Australians affected by motor neurone disease (MND).
 
In September 2012, MND South Australia hosted the 6th National MND Conference. The conference was attended by 180 health professionals from across Australia and New Zealand. The conference theme – Care, Advocacy and Research – was explored by keynote presenters who discussed client-focused initiatives, best practice in symptom management and care, enhancing service delivery, and advances in knowledge and clinical care. Feedback from delegates indicated that the conference provided useful information that they will use in practice to better care for people with MND.

The information needs of health and community professionals involved in MND care continue to be supported through the MNDcare website.  In the last year the site has been visited around 25,000 times with the bulk of visitors from Australia, USA, UK, India, Canada and New Zealand.
 
Good quality information is vital to empowering people with MND to make decisions to help them live better for longer. This year we have strived to improve the mechanism of information delivery by rethinking, redesigning and rewriting the MND Australia website. The new information architecture and interface are designed to assist people in finding the information they need faster and more easily. 
 
In the coming months we will be extending our outreach activities by producing a regular enewsletter featuring the latest information about our advocacy, information and awareness activities. Subscribe to receive MND Australia updates.
