Specialist care centres can provide comprehensive, integrated, multidisciplinary care for patients, as well as information and support for family members. They aim to incorporate networks of all relevant medical disciplines within the core team. They have effective links with national networks of testing laboratories and other care centres at a national and international level.
Specialist nurses play a vital role in the day-to-day running of clinics and deal with many of the familial aspects of work with patients and family members. Physical therapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists and disease counsellors should also all be involved in supportive care for patients.
