To support you to make a real difference to a person with motor neurone disease, their carer and family the Motor Neurone Disease Association of NSW (MND NSW) is running face-to-face training sessions across metropolitan and regional NSW. The MND Aware training has been specifically developed for health and community care providers.

MND is a rapidly progressive disease with no known cure and limited treatment. To maintain quality of life, people with MND require a coordinated approach to care.

MND Aware has been updated and revamped and now includes information to assist you to become NDIS ready. As the NDIS is rolling out across NSW, knowledge of specific diseases such as MND are essential so that services can appropriately meet the increasing needs of people with MND as their NDIS funding becomes available. MND Aware continues to remain relevant for those who provide services to people with MND who are 65 and over who are eligible to access My Aged Care (MAC). This MND Aware training is for:

  • health, allied health and palliative care professionals
  • community, home care, disability and aged care workers
  • case managers
  • NDIA staff
  • MAC  and RAS staff

You will learn about:

  • the impact of MND
  • effective ways of responding to people with MND

Cost: $120 (including lunch, training booklet and certificate of attendance).

If you are a registered health practitioner, by completing this course you are eligible to receive up to 5 Continuing Professional Development points (CPD) as part of your ongoing professional development obligations. Please refer https://www.ahpra.gov.au for more information.

The face-to-face sessions are designed to complement the MND Aware web-based awareness training sessions that can be accessed free online at www.mndcare.net.au
