The seventh edition of the Manual for People Living with ALS Manual is an excellent educational resource and tool. It helps readers to organize personal health information and stimulate discussion between patients, family members, and their health-care providers about managing ALS care and coping with an often rapidly progressive neurological condition.
Vice-president Support Services Eleanor Leggat says, “This is a comprehensive resource that reflects input from a wide variety of healthcare professionals across Canada. The review committee included three neurologists, a physiatrist, two people with ALS and current and former caregivers. We are confident that the Manual will be perceived as a valuable resource, especially for those recently diagnosed with ALS.”
