The Advanced HD Working Group aims to map the provision of care for advanced HD within EHDN (settings, standard of care, therapies and support provided, carers support provided). It will support and enable participation of people with advanced HD in REGISTRY as well as other research projects of the network.
Design a questionnaire for clinicians/organisations to gather information about the provision of care for people with advanced HD, distribute the questionnaire to the centres within EHDN, collect the data and produce a report of the findings.
Design a consent form and information sheet to enable participation of people with Advanced HD in REGISTRY (use of drawing, pictures, simple sentences), review the existing questionnaires and data collected for REGISTRY to propose adaptation for advanced HD.
