Symptom management

The effects of MND – initial symptoms, rate and pattern of progression, and survival time after diagnosis – vary significantly from person to person. 

The diagnosis of MND has a big impact on all patients, however, and their family. Despite the impact of diagnosis, recent research has found that too few patients received evidence-based treatment that can ease the disease burden. Although incurable at this time, advances in contemporary care options to the patient with MND have been shown to prolong life and also to improve quality of that life (Miller et al. 2013).

Effectively managing the symptoms of MND is one of the primary goals in MND patient care (Miller at al. 2009).
