Nurses to study Parkinson's care

  • Comment
UK nurses are to carry out pioneering research into the needs of people with Parkinson’s disease and their carers.

The two-year study at Ulster University’s nursing school aims to help healthcare professionals understand the palliative care needs of Parkinson’s patients.

George Kernohan, professor of health research at the university, said: ‘This is the first research of its kind to be conducted here in Northern Ireland.

‘This research is particularly timely, as the UK government has recently recommended that palliative care should be available to everyone with an incurable disease,’ he added.

The study will be carried out in conjunction with the Parkinson’s Disease Society Northern Ireland and the Northern Ireland Hospice.
