Neurocare project publishes article in the Sri Lankan Journal of Nursing

As Sri Lanka undergoes a demographic shift with an increasing aging population, the prevalence of neurodegenerative diseases (NDD) among older adults is on the rise. Addressing the unique challenges posed by such conditions including Alzheimer Disease (AD), Dementia and Parkinson Disease (PD) requires a collaborative effort to enhance the knowledge and skills of caregivers and healthcare professionals. In this letter to the editor, we justify the necessity and explain the possibility of establishing and implementing a specialized advanced education programme to create trained cadre for NDD care for older adults in Sri Lanka. We believe that establishing such a programme is a promising initiative that could help to address the burden of NDD among older adults in Sri Lanka while it enhances the quality of healthcare provisions in Sri Lanka.
