Recommendation ID

Organisation of care:- Is a network-based model as effective as a clinic-based model to deliver multidisciplinary care to people with motor neurone disease (MND)?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- Multidisciplinary care improves survival in patients with MND. The evidence is drawn from models of multidisciplinary care that use a clinic based approach. However there are other models of care delivery in practice including care networks. Often these alternative models of care have arisen out of necessity in large geographical regions with low density populations. These alternative models may have similar survival advantages to patients with MND and this needs to be established.
