In line with our 2021 theme "Access to Services" we're calling for investment in neurology and neurorehabilitation services, as well as the need to tackle the serious threat facing not for profit providers of neurological care services.

Our key message is that all these services were already completely underresourced pre-COVID19 and are no position to meet pent-up and additional demand into the future in the wake of the current pandemic.


Promoting Digital Responses to the Needs of People with Neurological Conditions

COVID19 has helped to catalyse telemedicine's widespread implementation across many areas of the health service. The Neurological Alliance of Ireland is interested in exploring the concerns and preferences of those delivering and receiving this care. NAI carried out small scale surveys in 2020 with its own patient organisations and with a group of people living with neurological conditions and also commissioned some structured interviews with neurology clinicians.

Our webinar on March 25th aims to bring together representatives from these key stakeholder groups, along with strategic and operational leads for e health in Ireland, to explore the opportunities and challenges for telemedicine post COVID19.

Registration for this webinar will open shortly
