The Neurology Academy is an innovative training programme for clinicians, specialised nurses and professions allied to medicine.
Currently our main focus is on Parkinson’s disease, dementia and multiple sclerosis, although MasterClasses in epilepsy are in development. These individually tailored courses have run successfully for over a decade and are co-ordinated through an academic faculty.
For a number of years we have received feedback at the Parkinson’s Academy about including sessions about research. Taking these responses and working with The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) and NIHR leads Dr Camille Carroll, Professor Oliver Bandmann and the Academy’s Dr Peter Fletcher, we designed the Research Engagement meeting for professionals who are becoming or aspire to become involved with Parkinson’s research on many different levels.
We’ve filmed the Research Engagement meeting in December 2018 and each week we are posting an article with video to look at the meeting’s speaker sessions in more detail.
