Cutting Edge Science for Parkinson’s Clinicians 2022
BIAL in partnership with the Parkinson’s Academy invite you to the 5th annual scientific meeting designed to advance scientific insights for specialists working within Parkinson’s disease.
In person meeting location:
The Birmingham Conference & Events Centre (BCEC)
Parkinson's Cutting Edge Science is our conference designed by specialists, for specialists. Our packed programme invites you to challenge your knowledge of Parkinson's, expand your understanding of the condition, and delve more deeply into the latest research and its application to future clinical practice.
Cutting Edge Science for Parkinson’s Clinicians unpicks ‘truth’, what is accepted ‘dogma’ and what is done because it has always been done. Speakers untangle their expert area so even where there is little evidence, clinicians return to their patients with knowledge, understanding in context, and application in practice taking patient care to a new level.
"This promises to be a really super meeting bringing together experts who will provide valuable insights in the field of Parkinson’s care in the midst of Covid-19 crisis. We look forward to welcoming you to an inspiring meeting which will also afford a lot of opportunity for networking and discussion."
Dr Emily Henderson
