Advanced nurse practitioner made shock diagnosis bearable
When Martin Bailey's mother Janet was diagnosed with motor neurone disease, it was advanced nurse practitioner Kym Troman who provided essential support to help the family cope
When my mum Janet Bailey was diagnosed with motor neurone disease we were lucky to be under the care of advanced nurse practitioner Kym Troman.
The diagnosis of this cruel disease came as a shock. My mum didn’t seem to take it in, but I did and it hit hard.
When we met Kym she was friendly and caring from the outset, but at this point mum still wasn’t taking it all in. Kym really got through to her and made her realise the seriousness of the illness.
