  • 3.11.2014 NAI and Irish Hospice Foundation Launch Joint Research on Palliative Care and Neurological Conditions - New Web Site
    current level of service available The report is based on interviews with seven NAI member organisations conducted by Dr John Weafer and describes varying levels of access to palliative care around the country One of the organisations interviewed commented There is huge inequality around Ireland regarding the availability of palliative care it very much depends on where you live The NAI is now calling for protocols and pathways to be developed and increased resourcing and training opportunities for neurology and specialist palliative care services and advises that a multi disciplinary approach is needed for those suffering from neurological conditions Organisations interviewed said nursing home settings are often unsuitable for those with advanced neurological disease and that neurology and palliative care services are fragmented and concentrated in a few specialist centres situated in cities Other issues highlighted are a level of uncertainty around when palliative care should begin lack of understanding of the needs of individuals with advanced neurological disease and a need for training for all those who work with them the sensitive nature of discussing palliative care the important role of voluntary organisations in supporting people with a life limiting neurological condition The organisations that participated in the study were Brain Tumour Ireland Cheshire Ireland Huntingtons Disease Association of Ireland Motor Neurone Disease Association MS Ireland Parkinsons Association of Ireland Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Association of Ireland The Alzheimer Society of Ireland also had an advisory role in the study Mags Rogers Development Manager of NAI said Our collaboration with the Irish Hospice Foundation has allowed us to open a conversation about palliative care and neurological conditions in Ireland Our aim is that the report will provide the starting point for a focused discussion with all stakeholders to understand the needs of people with progressive neurological conditions Marie Lynch Head
