  • Supporting People with Long-Term Neurological Conditions

    Long-term neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease or Motor Neurone Disease are the primary focus. The aim of this module is to enable students to enhance their practice in this area by developing their knowledge and ability to work in partnership with individuals, their families and carers experiencing the impact of such a condition. Students will have the opportunity to centre their attention on the neurological condition they focus on in their practice. Learning will include generating an awareness of the variability and unpredictability of the physical and psychosocial effects of these conditions and how this can impact on every aspect of the lives of all involved. Current research into the management of people with long-term neurological conditions will be critically evaluated with a quest for `best practice'. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF, WHO 2001) will be used as a framework for this module to enable a bio-psychosocial approach.
