2 page position statement that includes suggestons to assist you when researching MND on the internet. With the internet being as accessible and unregulated as it is, MND Associations often receive contact from people regarding treatments being offered both here and overseas that claim to treat or cure MND.

Often, these treatments are promoted and feature in online search results when people are searching for information about MND. It is very difficult for people living with MND and their families, who are hoping to find effective treatments or a cure, to sort the fact from fiction and the paid advertising from good quality health information.

The calibre of the researchers who presented at MND NSW Ask the Experts Monday 5 November 2018, was excellent. Dr Rebekah Ahmed, Consultant Neurologist, Senior Lecturer and Director of the Memory and Cognition Clinic at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and the University of Sydney, provided a very interesting overview of MND.

“Cleared up some doubts”, was one participant’s comment after the MND NSW Ask the Experts Forum at West Ryde on 22 August 2016. This Forum, held annually, aims to provide people with MND, their family and friends the opportunity to hear from experts in the fields of MND research and neurology and to ask questions.
