In this EmpowerRN video shared in March 2015, Caroline, a registered nurse, talks us through the signs, symptoms and treatments for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and how the disease progresses from initial symptoms to end of life.
The video is primarily aimed at fellow nurses, offering tips on studying and answering examination questions as well as better understanding the disease. It also gives a good insight into the pathology of the disease and how to care for patients with ALS, which may benefit primary caregivers and the families of ALS patients.
