Encouraging primary care and community neurology to be more person-centred

The Primary care and Community Neurology Society (P-CNS) has created a Person-Centred Neurosciences steering committee who have shaped the Society’s new vision and mission. Our vision, which acknowledges the significance of learning through lived experiences, is to provide sustainable, consistent, and high-quality care and education services that consider and support the individual needs of the person so they can live well in the community with suspected or confirmed neurological conditions.

To meet our new steering committee members just click here, or click on the “About Us” menu and selecting steering committee.

Members of the new Person-Centred Neurosciences Steering Committee have contributed to a paper that has been published one of the largest online medical education platforms in the UK, OnMedica

Our paper provides a unique window into what it’s like to hear very challenging news, written with health professionals who have had to hear the news themselves! But importantly, it also highlights how upsetting and stressful it can be for many health professionals who are having to impart that challenging news, something that some people may not have appreciated before.

We hope the messages from this paper will be brought to the attention of many people to support the voice of those who feel they haven’t been heard.

A person-centred perspective through art

This image is one of many designed by P-CNS Steering Committee member and emergency medicine consultant, Dr Jonny Acheson. 

Dr Acheson was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2016. He strives to live as well as he can every day with a focus on exercise, diet and reducing stress. He took up art as a hobby again a few years ago and uses this to educate about Parkinson’s but also to draw people’s pets and children’s wall art using the letters that spell their name.

  2. Stimulate thoughts and ideas from both healthcare professionals and patients
  3. Help raise awareness that people cope with epilepsy in different ways
  4. Provide a place where you are an equal partner in stimulating ideas for epilepsy research
