On-Demand Parkinson’s Advanced MasterClass
This is a fully virtual course including 20 on-demand sessions
The 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. The practical, in-depth and case-based learning will move participants from 'knowledgeable' to 'expert'.
This year, in response to healthcare professionals' continued interest in specialist education and the challenges wrought by the coronavirus pandemic, we are providing our full Advanced MasterClass both virtually and on demand. With over 17 years of experience delivering Parkinson's education, we now bring you a new way to learn.
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.

What will the course involve?
This fully virtual course comprises 20 on-demand sessions delivered by practicing experts from across the spectrum of research, care and treatment required in optimal management of Parkinson's.
Designed to advance delegate's understanding of Parkinson’s disease and related movement disorders, the course delves deeply into diagnosis, management and treatment, offering a broad spectrum of practical, holistic understanding applying the latest research and science to a caring and compassionate delivery of care.
With detailed complex case study-led discussions, a delve into data use and a session on service modelling, delegates are equipped to put their learning into practice, further encouraged through the plethora of workplace project poster write-ups available in our resources section.
How is the course taught?
The fully virtual course is accessed in the delegates' own time via our designated online learning portal. The 20 virtual sessions can be completed in a time frame and style that best suits each learner, whether compressed into a few days of concentrated learning, or spread out across several weeks or even months.
With supporting papers, tools, and resources shared online as well, each individual will be equipped to complete the course in the way that both optimises their learning experience and fits with their other commitments.
Upon completion of all sessions you will also receive a certificate to add to your portfolio.
