For healthcare professionals, there are links to relevant guidelines, research and reviews. For patients and the public, there is information on quick reads, useful websites and support services. We have created a suite of bulletins based on a comprehensive list of health care topics which you will see listed below.
A background document to inform the development of the national standards for adult safeguarding was published on the day of the seminar. This comprehensive document summarises international, national and academic evidence for adult safeguarding.
Short video created by HIQA and the Mental Health Commission was also launched at the seminar. The video promotes awareness about what safeguarding is and how it is connected to people’s rights, health and wellbeing.

This booklet is for people who have an advancing neurological illness, and who want to make plans for their future. It may also be useful for family members, friends, carers and healthcare professionals. It is not for people who have recently been diagnosed with an advancing neurological illness. If you are newly diagnosed, contact an organisation that supports people living with your illness, such as those listed on pages 21 and 22. Although many neurological illnesses progress in a similar way, your illness is individual and unique to you. Understanding the nature of your particular illness will help you as you read this booklet. It can also help you to understand and manage your symptoms, and help you to speak confidently with your healthcare team. You can get information from your doctor and other healthcare professionals, or from the organisations which support people living with your illness. Full-text available HERE
This booklet aims to help you to:
- understand why planning for the future can be helpful
- find out how you can plan for your care in advance
- sort out your legal affairs
