GP talking to patient

MND is a progressive and ultimately fatal disease that results in degeneration of the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. GPs and others in the primary care team can make a great difference to the quality of life of people with MND, with timely care, support and symptom management.

These online courses are designed to help you support people affected by MND.
