Cutting Edge Science for Parkinson’s Clinicians 2024
BIAL in partnership with the Parkinson’s Academy invite you to the 7th annual scientific meeting designed to advance scientific insights for specialists working within Parkinson’s disease.
Macdonald Burlington Birmingham,
Please note this is an in-person meeting and a virtual attendance option will not be available.
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.
