The Hydrocephalus Association (HA) is proud to announce the release of a new informational page specifically dedicated to the needs of persons diagnosed with Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH). The new NPH page gives a broad overview of NPH, highlights the latest edition of our NPH booklet, illustrates and describes the three classic symptoms that define it, and provides access to resources that will prove helpful to people with NPH.
The need for clear and useful information is one that we’ve striven to meet since our inception. The old website was designed to reach all populations living with hydrocephalus but was limited in its resources, making it difficult to give the different types of hydrocephalus the appropriate attention they deserved.
The information needs of our SHYMA/LOVA population are different from those of the NPH or congenital population and this is the first step in our effort to address these differences. Plans are being implemented to create additional specific information pathways for the other types of hydrocephalus in the coming months.
The new HA website, deployed last year, was designed to be more responsive to changes in technology and, more importantly, to better serve the needs of our community. Our NPH page is the first step!
