Health Professional Education

closeup Parkinson's Nurse Specialist team inn am meeting educating Allied Health Professionals

Welcome you to our initiative for Health Professionals.

Our Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist Service plays a leading role in the education of health professionals.

As we are all aware the management and care for people living with Parkinson’s is a multifaceted challenge and for this reason Parkinson’s WA Inc. plans to provide a point of contact where all disciplines can access resources and informed responses to the queries you may bring to this site.

As we develop the site we hope to provide links to professional development opportunities which may be available online in addition to face to face opportunities closer to home.

If you are a health professional and would like to learn more about how we can support you in providing services to clients with Parkinson’s read our Information for Health Professionals pamphlet.

You may also wish to review the information regarding medications to be given with caution to people with Parkinson’s for Health Professionals
