“Looking Beyond COVID-19: The Future of Neurological Care”

The pandemic has led to reflection and debate across healthcare in Ireland as to how services can recover from disruption and potentially overcome some of the systemic issues that impacted our health system pre COVID-19.

Neurological care services are embracing new treatment approaches and technologies including those developed here in Ireland. On the other hand, the infrastructure to support people living with neurological conditions remains critically underfunded and underdeveloped.

This Neurological Alliance of Ireland facilitated panel discussion brings together representatives from neurology, neurorehabilitation, neuroscience research, the not for profit sector and service user perspectives on the key challenges facing neurological care and whether recovery from COVID-19 represents an opportunity to address some of the critical challenges facing neurological care.
