Health professionals surveyed on Parkinson's knowledge

  • Comment
Health and social care professionals are being asked to complete a survey designed to identify their training needs regarding Parkinson’s disease and mental health.
It is part of a two-year project funded by the Department of Health to raise awareness of the impact of the condition on mental health and improve education.

The survey, by the Parkinson’s Disease Society, will run from 15 January to 26 February and will include questions covering the mental health problems associated with the disease.

Both the disease and the medications used to treat it can cause mental health problems.

Steve Ford, PDS chief executive said: ‘The results of the survey will be used to inform the development of training materials including written materials, conferences and primary training courses.’

The survey can be found here.
