  • Neurological conditions the focus of patient care improvement | HSC Public Health Agency
    Parkinsons things that many of us aren t aware of but which have an enormous impact on people s lives The training initiative will help service providers think differently about how they carry out their role when dealing with people with neurological conditions and how they can improve the services they provide be that health and social care services or other public services One contributor to the training video was Fiona McLaughlin from Belfast She cared for her mother who suffered from a neurodegenerative disease called Progressive Supranuclear Palsy PSP Fiona herself also has a neurological condition She said One of the issues for a lot of people with neurological conditions is that for many of us it s not obvious Many people I ve spoken to over the years have said it d be easier if I had a broken arm If you had that it would be visible and something obviously wrong with you and people wouldn t be expecting you to operate at full speed to be quick on your feet or to think quickly It s not always physically apparent in the early or middle stages of a condition that someone has a neurological problem I hope this type of recognition will be improved through the training so that there is a greater empathy among those treating patients helping not just them but also their friends and families Speaking at the launch of the training programme Health Minister Jim Wells highlighted the role of service users and carers in the development of the initiative We meet people with neurological conditions every day and behind those people you have their families friends and neighbours who are living with the condition as well I am delighted that this training programme has been developed with service users and carers
