Situation

The difficult experience of patients who receive a diagnosis of an incurable neurological disease. Some treatments (not cures) are available, and could be administered with help from the nurse. The role would also provide emotional support for the patient and their family and reduce waiting times for others.

Solution

Additional staff time and expertise
