NICE Parkinson's Quality Standard - opportunity to respond

The Parkinson's Academy has an opportunity to respond to suggest five key areas for improvement to go into the NICE Parkinson’s Quality Standard and we are keen to hear about your ideas.NICE quality standards describe high-priority areas for quality improvement in a defined care or service area. Each standard consists of a prioritised set of specific, concise and measurable statements. They draw on existing guidance, which provides an underpinning, comprehensive set of recommendations, and are designed to support the measurement of improvement.We welcome your contributions to tell us what you consider to be the five key areas for quality improvement which you think have the greatest potential to improve the quality of care in this area.
