Handbook for health care professionals

In April 2010 we began distribution of an information package including a handbook ‘Caring for a patient with suspected CJD’ .

1200 copies have already been distributed to hospitals all over Australia who have cared for, or are likely to care for a patient with suspected CJD.

This package is available to any health care professional free of charge on request. Telephone 1800 052466 or email

We would like to acknowledge and thank the health care professionals who contributed and assisted with the handbook.
