Masterclass courses

parkinsons-academy-logo_RCurrently there are two distinct MasterClass programmes for professionals wanting to advance their skills in Parkinson’s, plus a non-oral therapy roadshow.

Foundation MasterClass

This Parkinson’s Academy course is designed for non-final year registrars, StRs, PD nurses within the first 18 months of post, pharmacists, clinical fellows and clinical lecturers. The course is set as one module over two days with one residential evening. The course will advance understanding of Parkinson’s and related movement disorders through taught sessions.

Advanced MasterClass

Previously known as the Classic Masterclass, this Parkinson’s Academy course is designed for consultants, experienced Parkinson’s Nurses, final year SpR’s, GPWSI, Associate Specialists and Staff Grade Physicians. The course will advance understanding of Parkinson’s disease and related movement disorders through taught sessions and mentorship (a mentor will be appointed for each participant where applicable).

Non-oral therapy roadshow

Following the publication of a new best practice pathway for the use of non-oral treatments in Parkinson’s, which has been devised by clinicians to make the referral process for these therapies more explicit, the Parkinson’s Academy is launching a series of regional roadshows on this subject.

The day-long course called “Making the Most – Non-Oral Therapies in Parkinson’s” will cover:

  • What non-oral therapies are and how they work
  • What to expect when you make a referral
  • How to use data to convince commissioners
  • Case histories exploring how to use non-oral therapies.
