Parkinson's is the fastest growing neurodegenerative condition in the world and is an immensely complex condition affecting each individual in a very unique way. It impacts a wide range of functions and abilities from movement and cognition, to digestion and mood.

To specialise in Parkinson's is to be able to understand your patient, what they are experiencing, how their symptoms are affecting them, and to work within a cohesive multidisciplinary team to find the right combination of medications, therapies, lifestyle changes and psychological interventions to control their condition and maximise their quality of life.

Our Foundation MasterClass is a complete and thorough grounding for anyone looking to develop this speciality and to improve the experiences of people with Parkinson's within their clinical practice.

Really good quality information, practical and linked to the evidence base. I feel confident in the information being provided and that I will be able to incorporate this knowledge into my day to day practice.
