9th National MND Australia Conference on care 2018

mnd80MND CARE - Informing, Influencing, Innovating

The 9th National Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Australia Conference will be hosted by the MND Association of South Australia on Friday 31 August 2018 at the Grand Chancellor Hotel, Adelaide.

Background: On Tuesday 21 June 2005 the first National MND Conference was held in Melbourne. Over the next few years the National MND Conference was held annually to coincide with Global MND Day. In 2012 a new model was developed to host a biennial National Conference to alternate with the National Palliative Care Conference. 

The aim of the Conference is to promote sharing of expertise and understanding of MND nationally to improve care and support for people living with MND, their carers and family.

It provides an opportunity to promote evidence based and best practice care and to encourage collaboration, coordination and research.
