Cutting Edge Science for Parkinson’s Clinicians 2023
BIAL in partnership with the Parkinson’s Academy invite you to the 6th annual scientific meeting designed to advance scientific insights for specialists working within Parkinson’s disease.
The Birmingham Conference & Events Centre (BCEC)
Please note this is an in-person meeting and a virtual attendance option will not be available.
Cutting Edge Science for Parkinson’s Clinicians unpicks ‘truth’, what is accepted ‘dogma’ and what is done because it has always been done. Speakers untangle their expert area so even where there is little evidence, clinicians return to their patients with knowledge, understanding in context, and application in practice taking patient care to a new level.
We look forward to hosting this meeting that brings together experts in movement disorders to talk about the latest in clinical and research developments that are relevant to day-to-day practice for clinicians who care for people with Parkinson’s. As ever this promises to be an event that fosters lively debate, questioning and interaction with some of the UK’s leading experts. On behalf of the whole organising team, I look forward to welcoming you to the 6th Cutting Edge Science meeting in June.
