Product description


Motor neurone disease affects the nerves that control the muscles of the body. A diagnosis of MND can be very frightening, but the good news is that we now know more about MND than ever before, thanks to advances in care and research. Dr David Oliver's book shows how much can be done to help someone with the disease live their life to the full. Dr Oliver spells out what the disease is, what the doctors will do, and how to cope with the difficulties. This new edition also examines possible dietary factors in causing the disease, the latest on benefits, and up to date thinking on drug trials. He shows how to treat not just the physical effects but also the emotional ones for the whole family. Dr Oliver also explains the vital role of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

About the Author

Dr David Oliver is Consultant in Palliative Medicine and Medical Director at the Wisdom Hospice in Rochester, Kent. He is also an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Kent, and Visiting Professor at the University of Zagreb, in Croatia. Closely involved in the care of people with MND, in 2003 he was awarded the Humanitarian Award from the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations.
