MND Professionals’ Community of Practice
Our partners at the MND Association have launched the MND Professionals’ Community of Practice (CoP). The Community is for health and social care professionals practising or interested in the field of MND care.
It is a peer-led group of health and social care professionals encouraging and supporting the development of good care for people living with, or affected by, MND.
Being an active member of the CoP could count towards your professional CPD requirement. Find out more here.
