On-Demand Parkinson's Foundation MasterClass
Parkinsons Foundation MasterClass specifically designed to give participants a solid grounding in the knowledge and skills they need to practice in this clinical area.

With over 17 years of experience delivering Parkinsons Education, we bring you a new way to learn.
Who is this course for?
It is suitable for anyone looking to improve their understanding of Parkinson's - it's diagnosis, management, and treatment. It is particularly appropriate for non-final year registrars, old age psychiatry registrars, Parkinson’s nurses within the first 18 months of post, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, pharmacists, clinical fellows, and clinical lecturers and GPwER. We are also welcoming international Parkinson's healthcare professionals - although please be advised that the course is delivered from a UK perspective.
