On-Demand Parkinson’s Advanced MasterClass 2
This is a fully virtual course comprising 19 on-demand sessions. Delegates will be able to access sessions, presentation slides and other resources for 12 months after payment and registration with their website account.
Whilst we greatly value the in-person learning experience, we recognise that time and travel constraints, personal responsibilities and other challenges can create a barrier to education and we want to overcome that. One way we can do this is through our on-demand MasterClasses.
Designed to provide a strong grounding in Parkinson's diagnosis, treatment and management, these courses draw on a mixture of frontline experience, the latest evidence bases and cutting edge research. Designed and delivered by eminent Parkinson's specialists across health disciplines, it is an ideal course for consultants, specialist nurses, therapists, pharmacists and other allied healthcare professionals keen to improve their practice and their patient's experiences.
The On-demand Parkinson's Advanced MasterClass is specifically designed to further the knowledge and skillset of those who already have an understanding of Parkinson's diagnosis, treatment and management. Constantly updated to provide engaging teaching encompassing the latest research, policy and best practice, this practical, in-depth and case-based learning will move participants from 'knowledgeable' to 'expert'.
Led by co-founder and academic director Dr Peter Fletcher, the Academy has a truly collegiate feel and prides itself on delivering 'the things you can't get from the books' – a practical learning model which inspires our MasterClasses.
