The MND Aware e-learning training sessions are for front line staff, working with people living with motor neurone disease (which is also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease).
Developed in 2011, the MND Aware online training sessions provide health and community care professionals with a basic understanding of motor neurone disease (MND) and the impact of MND on an individual’s life.
The e-learning sessions are:
9 Introductory sessions (Sessions 1-9) of interest to all people working with people living with MND and includes Session 1-9 self-test quiz
10 Symptom management sessions (Sessions 10-19) provide a more detailed look at how MND symptoms are managed by the care team and includes Session 10-19 self-test quiz
7 Wellbeing and support need sessions (Sessions 20-26) provide a more detailed look at the wellbeing and support needs of the person living with MND and their carer, family and friends and includes Session 20-26 self-test quiz
The e-learning sessions have been specifically developed for home and community care workers, intake, information and referral officers, case managers, health and residential care workers. This project has been supported by NSW Government Family & Community Services, Ageing, Disability and Home Care and MND NSW.
