Nursing

While your neurologist has a primary role in diagnosing, treating and helping you manage your condition, a neurological nurse can be a vital part of your support team.

Nurses provide ongoing support and coordination to ensure you receive the best plan to meet your individual needs.

MSWA employs a team of nurses in hospital and community care settings.

Our nurses are trained to understand the often-complex symptoms and challenges and can provide ongoing support to help you minimise or manage symptoms such as fatigue, mobility problems, bladder or bowel dysfunction.

An MSWA nurse will assess your situation and recommend a tailored plan to ensure you receive the best possible care.
