    our European partners Thinking Ahead calls on the incoming government to develop services working in partnership with neurological charities that meet the needs of people with neurological conditions for diagnosis treatment and long term support and rehabilitation Professor Orla Hardiman Consultant Neurologist in Beaumont Hospital and spokesperson for the Thinking Ahead campaign urged the public to get behind the campaign on behlaf of all the people with neurological conditions and their families we support the current HSE focus on neurological care recognising that this is a major challenge facing our health system She continued However the incoming government must realise that neurological conditions will be the cancer of the future in terms of their impact on developed countries like Ireland The number of people developing neurological conditions as our population ages will increase by over 160 000 in the next ten years The next government must make neurological care their top priority for health Today the NAI also launched the first nationwide online survey to allow people with neurological conditions and their families to report their experiences of neurological care A key element of the Thinking Ahead campaign is the critical importance of charities to neurological care in Ireland Irish charities save the State millions of euros each year by subsidising the cost of neurological care through fundraising for vital services including specialist nurses physiotherapy and home care supports and through mobilising volunteers The health service is reliant on the expertise and experience of these charities to provide specialist care and support to people with neurological conditions and their families Launching the campiagn today Anne Winslow Chair of the NAI said Further cuts to State funding for neurological charities will have a devastating impact on those who rely on services that are provided in a targeted and cost effective manner

  • 17.9.2014 New research into stroke care in Ireland makes the value for money case for investing in neurorehabilitation
    be reinvested in developing community rehabilitation 5 10 million ESD could free up over 24 000 hospital bed days the equivalent of 67 hospital beds annually The main findings of the report are Current Stroke Rehabilitation There is poor resourcing of community and inpatient rehabilitation for stroke survivors There is considerable regional variation in stroke survivors length of stay in acute hospitals which appears to reflect differing regional pathways of care and differing resources of care in alternative settings Many severe stroke patients endure long waits for nursing home care and specialist inpatient rehabilitation Primary care services are particularly underdeveloped and staffing of community therapies is under resourced Cost Effectiveness of Early Supported Discharge ESD ESD could be a cost effective intervention in Ireland and almost half of stroke patients 44 could benefit ESD could improve disability outcomes reduce the likelihood of long term institutional care and reduce length of hospital stay If almost half of stroke patients 3000 participated in ESD savings of between 7m and 2m could be made depending on the model of ESD provided Reducing the length of time stroke survivors remain in hospital would save 12m Well resourced ESD would cost 10m and less well
