Lorraine is a community and hospital palliative consultant with a special in interest in the management of people living with chronic neurological conditions. For a number of years, she led a chronic neurological working group to increase joint awareness and education between the hospice and the specialist teams involved with their care. This resulted the transfer of the local MND care centre to the hospice premises, an expansion of the number of people accessing the hospice day and community services and more cohesive working across all the teams. She has an MPhil in Medical Law (Glasgow) and has extensive clinical experience with supporting patients in creating comprehensive and clear advance care plans. The majority of these are completed by patients living with chronic neurological conditions. These may cover their future wishes for or against medical treatment. In specific circumstances, these also include clinical care plans that support the clinicians, especially if the person wishes to remain at home. She is currently auditing the use of these clinical ‘emergency care plans’ by clinicians in the community to ascertain how effective they are in practice. Lorraine is an enthusiastic speaker and looks forward to sharing her experiences of how to communicate and create workable advance care plans for people living with multiple sclerosis.
