About the course

Understanding Huntington's disease - a certificated course for professionals, is a three day course providing a unique opportunity to learn from leading Huntington's experts and virtually meet with fellow professionals working with people affected by Huntington’s. We will help you develop a greater understanding of the disease, give you opportunity to share your experiences and ideas and discuss the management of complex situations. Leading Huntington’s disease professionals will present online over three days on topics such as genetics, neuro-psychology, psychiatry, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and palliative care. On finishing the course, you will receive a certificate confirming that you have undertaken training approved by the Huntington's Disease Association to enhance your practice.

A pre-course booklet will be sent in the weeks leading up to the event providing details of the agenda, some short activities to complete both before and during the course and a number of key Huntington's resources.

There will also be an optional additional session on 18 November for anyone who wants to receive a general overview of Huntington's disease prior to the more in depth presentations featured during the course. You can indicate whether you want to attend this session when you book your place.
