About Information and Education sessions

What are Information and Education sessions?

Information and education sessions are run by our Client Services team, and are designed for service providers caring for individuals with Huntington’s disease. The sessions are run in a presentation style, followed by a question-and-answer session with the facilitator. They can approximately 2 hours and often focus on the physical, cognitive and mental health issues that can appear as the disease progresses. The content can be tailored to your needs – just have a chat to our team.

What is the aim of these sessions?

Information and education sessions are designed primarily to help Queensland service providers and professionals give clients with Huntington’s disease the best care possible. Due to the rare nature of HD, many service providers have little or no experience caring for or assisting individuals with HD, and require specialised training to help them adapt their service for this complex condition. By engaging with these sessions, service providers are given a thorough overview of Huntington’s disease in a practical and educational way, and have the opportunity to seek further knowledge from our experienced staff about best practice and what to expect as the disease progresses.

Who can attend sessions?

Sessions are available upon request to any service provider community group in Queensland. Depending upon location, this maybe online.  Sessions are open to all who wish to attend, but the focus of the sessions are on care and management best practice for service providers, and are not necessarily relevant to individuals and carers outside of a professional setting.
