You will learn about the specific care that neurological patients require, and recognize the most common complications, a vitally important issue for patients"

master enfermeria servicio neurologia

Neurological diseases have a broad impact on society. These diseases affect the entire population, regardless of age. Its consequences have a negative impact on the quality of life of the affected patients, preventing a high percentage of them from carrying out basic day-to-day activities, creating great dependence with the resulting cost, both in terms of healthcare and in terms of family and social care for the caregivers in charge of these patients (in Alzheimer's disease, 80% of the family members are cared for by relatives). They also have a major impact on mortality. 

Stroke, for example, is the second leading cause of death globally and the first in women. Alzheimer’s disease, among other dementias, has a prevalence of between 4% and 9%, reaching 50% in people over 90 years of age. Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, migraine, demyelinating and neuromuscular diseases also represent a serious social and health problem.

In addition, this Professional Master’s Degree will study the pathophysiology of the main neurological diseases from a nursing approach. Having nurses who are highly qualified in the management of patients with different neurological pathologies increases the quality of care and reduces complications. Knowing the specific care required by neurological patients and knowing how to recognize the most common complications is of paramount importance in these patients, as it will allow them to recover their autonomy as much as possible. In this regard, there are several scientific articles that show that having nurses who are experts in advanced practices such as sclerosis, movement disorders or headaches and migraines, provides significant benefits. It highlights the adherence to treatment and increased independence, which promotes patients’ return to work and other daily activities. 

This online Professional Master’s Degree is made up of 10 modules and more than 100 units designed by a group of nursing professionals with extensive experience in healthcare and teaching, who carry out their work in a highly complex hospital setting.
