Each year the prestigious Annual Stephen Hawking MND Foundation Lecture is delivered as part of the partnership between the Royal College of Nursing and the MND Association. Each lecture is delivered by an expert in their field. The purpose of the lecture is to share current research with members of the multidisciplinary team and demonstrate how this might feed into their practice. This brings the most up to date thinking and practical advances directly to people living with MND.
Attendees value the lectures highly:
“High quality research presented, which is extremely relevant to our clinical work in a specialist area of practice. Good opportunity for networking with other professionals in the same field.”
“The speaker was excellent, her presentation was extremely accessible to non-research professionals and I walked away with a clear idea of how I could implement more evidence-based practice into my work with MND patients."
