Bringing you the latest clinical thinking on cognitive change in people living with motor neurone disease.

This prestigious event aims, each year, to bring you the latest clinical thinking in the field of motor neurone disease. This year the focus is 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, will introduce you to her research and explore the useful practical steps that you might use in your practise to provide the best person centred care. The lecture is followed by a question and answer session and an informal networking opportunity accompanied by a glass of wine.


This free lecture is a unique opportunity for 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. The lecture is open to RCN members and non-members.


New for 2018

Due to high demand, the lecture will be live streamed and open to all. Health and social care professionals across the United Kingdom can sign-up for the live stream using the 'apply to watch online' tab above.
