My role as Nurse Specialist in Motor Neurone Disease is to provide support, information and advice for people diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. This support is also offered to their family and/or carers. I aim to see people at diagnosis and follow them through the course of their disease.
I work as part of a Multi Disciplinary Team, who may be involved at different stages of the disease process. I have joint clinics in Ninewells with the various Consultant Neurologists. As well clinic reviews, I will visit people in their own home, or where necessary nursing/residential homes. I also offer advice and support via telephone and email.
Part of my role also includes education/training and support for other Health Care Professionals involved in the care of patients with Motor Neurone Disease.
My post is part-time-22.5 hours per week over three days. I cover Tayside and North East Fife. I have an office base in Ninewells Hospital, Dundee. I work in collaboration with MND Scotland who are based in Glasgow.
