The Annual Stephen Hawking's MND Lecture
2023's lecture with Professor Bee Wee, CBE:
Planning ahead for effective person-centred care
Professor Bee Wee, CBE, Consultant in Palliative Medicine, Oxford Fellow of Harris Manchester College, Oxford University.
Hosted by Dr Sean Pert, Chair of the Board of Trustees, RCSLT.
2022's lecture with Professor Steven Bloch:
Communication in MND: How can we have better conversations?
The lecture was led by Professor Steven Bloch, (PhD, MRCSLT, SFHEA), professor of communication and social interaction in the division of psychology and language sciences, and vice dean education, Faculty of Brain Sciences, University College London.
Professor Bloch outlined emergent communication practice and research, and how all professionals can adapt their own communication to work better with people living with MND. Although the lecture focused on MND, much of the content will be applicable to many other conditions in which communication is impaired.
The online event was chaired by Dr Sean Pert, Deputy Chair of Board of Trustees, RCSLT.
MNDA and RCSLT express their thanks to the Stephen Hawking Foundation for their funding support.
