Resources for Professionals

We can offer support to a range of professionals working in the field of MND research and care.

MND Scotland serves as a knowledge base for professionals working with people affected by MND.

As well as funding research and providing information, care and support to people affected by MND, we also offer a range of services to support professionals in their roles.

These include financial support, where appropriate, as well as providing learning opportunities and information resources.

Information and Library Service

MND Scotland has a comprehensive Information and Library Service for professionals and people with Motor Neurone Disease. We have books, journals, conference proceedings and a collection of DVDs on issues pertaining to MND; such as palliative care, disability issues, community care and healthcare.

Education Service

Our Education Service allows professionals, interested organisations, people with MND, family members and carers to learn more about Motor Neurone Disease.

As a part of the service we can organise study days for health and social care professionals and provide in-house awareness raising sessions for employers, such as care agencies and social work staff.

We also run information sessions for families of the recently diagnosed, in conjunction with the MND Clinical Specialist Team.

Travel Grant for Professionals

MND Scotland offers a Travel Grant which allows professionals to meet the costs of attending relevant MND-related conferences and training courses. The grant can be used to cover event fees, registration costs, travel and accommodation.

We offer a comprehensive set of Factsheets for everyone with an interest in Motor Neurone Disease. 

Factsheets cover a wide range of topics, such as coping with MND, information for carers and research drugs and trials.
