This week is National Palliative Care Week (NPCW) which aims to raise awareness and understanding of palliative care in Australian communities.
The theme of this year’s National Palliative Care Week (NPCW); ‘Palliative Care It’s your right’, reinforces that palliative care is a universal human right and that all Australians should have access to high-quality palliative care when and where they need it.
MiNDAUS is a partnership of Australian MND researchers, clinicians and organisations, which aims to develop a nationally co-ordinated and patient-centred approach to MND research, care and policy development.
Around 10% of people diagnosed with MND have a ‘familial’ form of the condition; meaning there are two or more affected members within their family. Most people diagnosed with MND have what is called ‘sporadic’ MND, so although there may be a genetic element involved, other family members will not be affected.
