Cutting Edge Science for Parkinson’s Clinicians 2021
BIAL in partnership with the Parkinson’s Academy invite you to the 4th annual scientific meeting designed to advance scientific insights for specialists working within Parkinson’s disease.
The Birmingham Conference & Events Centre (BCEC)
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.
"A truly multi-professional meeting, which translates the very latest research into practice, enabling us to support and develop clinical practice for the benefit of people with Parkinson’s and their families."
Prof Annette Hand
"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
