RHN shares Multidisciplinary Expertise at Huntington’s Disease Conference

The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability was delighted to be represented as one of the five leading experts around a table at a recent Huntington’s Disease Conference.

The conference, hosted by Neuro Rehab Times, focused on ‘achieving patient-centred care in Huntington’s – now and in the future’. In attendance were the RHN’s own Lizel Muyo (Matron for Neuro-behavioural Service) and Katy Merrison (Occupational Therapist). The panel debated and discussed their perspectives and opinions on the current state of Huntington’s Disease care and looked ahead to the opportunities presented by new tech and ways of working.

‘Seeing the whole person’ which is one of RHN’s four key values, was a central point of discussion, which all panellists agreed was the key to achieving patient-centred care. This included the implementation of individualised goals, positive risk taking, and caring for them in a way which allows them to live their lives to the best possible quality.
