What better way to celebrate brain awareness week than a post about Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery now being available for regional residents of Queensland. NQNS is thrilled to be part of the DBS multidisciplinary team recently established in Townsville with Neurologist Dr Costello and Neurosurgeon Professor Matt McDonald the principal specialists. Deep Brain Stimulation is an advanced form of therapy that can assist suitable patients suffering with Parkinson’s Disease. This form of innovative therapy has only been accessible in capital cities across Australia. DBS is now being offered in Townsville for patients in regional areas of QLD which is preferable. The first two patients underwent surgery in February which was a complete success and completely life changing. Deidre was fortunate enough to observe this procedure along with the highly experienced team of professionals from Sydney, Adelaide and Townsville. www.mater.org.au/group/news/mater-news/march-2022/deep-brain-stimulation-surgery-a-first-for-townsvi ...

🧠 Brain Awareness Week 🧠Another important brain awareness topic we would like to highlight this week is- The recognition of neurocognitive difficulties experienced by ex-defence members. Over the past year, NQNS has been intrinsically involved in the rollout of an Acquired Brain Injury pilot program which commenced in Townsville, where we have a very high percentage of active and ex-defence members. This pilot is a fantastic initiative under the Neurocognitive Health Program (NHP) by Open Arms. It was developed due to the identified need for an improved service response to veterans and family members where the veteran presents with neurocognitive symptoms or concerns regarding cognitive decline. Our role has been to identify whether an organic neurocognitive disorder exists and to make a host of recommendations based on the findings, regardless of cause. It has been an honor to connect with some amazing ex-defence men and women and be able to provide this important service to our community. We look forward to the ongoing partnership with Open Arms.💙 If you are an ex-defence member or know someone who is and would like more info on this fantastic, free program, please contact Open Arms or pass this info on by sharing. ...
