The 7th International Symposium on NeuroImaging, and the 27th International Symposium on ALS/MND, both took place in Dublin in December 2016. Images from both events can be found in our gallery

Thanks to all those who attended the study day in Beaumont Hospital on 25th November 2016 entitled ‘Managing MND: The Impact of Cognitive and Behavioural Change’. The event was hosted by Prof. Hardiman’s MND Research Group as part of the development of an educational programme for healthcare professionals treating patients and families of people with MND. This was delivered as part of the HRB Knowledge Exchange & Dissemination Scheme (KEDS) grant which was awarded to Prof. Hardiman in February 2016.

It is hoped that similar study days will be hosted in the future by the group to continue to disseminate our research in the area as it evolves. Alongside the information presented on the day each attending healthcare professional (HCP) received a booklet entitled Best Practice Guidelines for HCPs. This document is available for download by clicking the link below. This is intended for use as a reference for those who attended on the day as well as a resource to any interested healthcare professional who was not able to attend.

Best Practice Guidelines for HCPs

Research Motor Neurone (RMN) was founded in 2007,  for the purpose of promoting and facilitating research into the causes and treatments of motor neurone disease (MND), also known as ALS. RMN also strives to increase awareness of this incurable disease at both a national and international level.

Ongoing research is needed to discover the cause, treatment and methods of improving quality of life for MND sufferers and their families.

The generous support from our donors helps us make progress in finding ways to help those who suffer from this debilitating condition. It is through the fundraising endeavours of all our sponsors that essential funds are raised to support RMN and our ongoing vital research. Thank you all for your kindness and continued support.
