Charity to host conference for experts
20th July 2009

A one-day conference for health and social care professionals who want to improve and develop services for people with Parkinson's disease is being held by the Parkinson's Disease Society.

Taking place on Tuesday August 25th at King's College London, the charity will host Making the Most of Your Multidisciplinary Team: Developing Services for Patients.

The conference is expected to discuss recent findings in the All Party Parliamentary Group, which documents a number of severe problems in the current system for those hoping to access services in the UK.

Daiga Heisters, the national education advisor at the Parkinson's Disease Society, said that in light of the findings of the report, it is necessary to address the issue of improving services available to people who suffer from the neurodegenerative condition.

She continued: "Health and social care professionals are key to ensuring that patients have the best quality of life and this conference will provide the skills necessary to provide the best service possible."

This month, the Parkinson's Disease Society threw its weight behind research into yeast models, which are believed to answer a number of major questions about the condition.
