Location: SITraN (Sheffield Institue for Translational Neuroscience), 385a
Glossop Road, Sheffield, S10 2HQ

SITraN and Sheffield MND Care Centre recently launched myTube – an online education resource about gastrostomy tube feeding in MND, aimed at patients and carers. It is also of great value to professional carers and Health Care Practitioners. www.mytube.mymnd.org.uk

We are holding a formal launch and learning event for myTube, and would like to invite you, as a colleague and friend of SITraN and the MND community to attend. Patients, carers, clinicians and researchers are all welcome.

myTube was co-created with people living with MND and their carers, and you can hear them speak about their experience of taking part at this event, as well as from the team of clinicians and designers/filmmakers who worked with them. We will also be asking you for your feedback and ideas to take myTube forwards.

myTube was developed with funding from the MND Association, the South Yorkshire branch of the MND Association and Westfield Health Charitable Trust. The MND Association were actively involved in the development and finalisation of the website, and it is now one of their key recommended resources.

Attendance is FREE – but places are limited, so registration is essential.

Please note: parking is extremely limited at SITraN and nearby. Details of parking and public transport links can be found in the event details on Eventbrite.

We look forward to welcoming you at the launch.
