Support for health professionals

Learn more about how we support health professionals involved in MND care.

MND New Zealand help guide health professionals so they can provide the best support and care for people living with MND, their carers, families, and whānau. Our Support Team Members work closely with health professionals in all DHBs throughout New Zealand.

The Support Team Members can:

  • Support health professionals involved in MND care who may have had limited experience of MND
  • Provide up-to-date, trusted MND information and education
  • Raise awareness and understanding of MND and developments in MND care, treatment and research
  • Promote communication, information sharing, and collaboration between health professionals (e.g. via attendance of multidisciplinary team meetings) and other community providers
