MND NSW is holding a series of workshops this year for allied health staff (occupational therapists, speech pathologists, dietitians and physios) who work with people with MND who are under 65 and have an NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) plan. The first of these was held on Thursday 9 February on the Central Coast. We had a great turn with about 20 allied health professionals attending, with the majority of those attending working as solo private practitioners. They wanted to know more about MND, working in a multidisciplinary way as a solo practitioner and 'MND and the NDIS'.
There was a lot of discussion around the adequacy of NDIS plans people with MND have had approved.
