This year, after almost two decades of experience in Parkinson's education, we are making our Foundation and Advanced Parkinson's MasterClasses available to an international audience!
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 Parkinson's Foundation MasterClass is specifically designed to give participants a solid grounding in the knowledge and skills they need to practice in this clinical area. This year, as a response to both your continued interest in specialist education and the challenges wrought by the coronavirus pandemic, we are providing our first full MasterClass virtually and on demand. With over 20 years of experience delivering Parkinson's 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 – its 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.
How is the course taught?
The fully virtual course is accessed in the delegates' own time via our designated online learning portal. The 12 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. Delegates will be able to access the course resources for 12 months after registration with their website account.
Upon completion of all sessions you will also receive a certificate to add to your portfolio.
