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.

Back in June the Parkinson’s Academy hosted “Cutting Edge Science for Parkinson’s Clinicians”, an educational meeting sponsored by Bial Pharma. Now in its second year the meeting was a sell-out again and expectations were high. Chaired by Dr Peter Fletcher (Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust), the meeting was designed to cater to the diverse needs and interests of its varied audience of neurologists, care of the elderly physicians, psychiatrists and Parkinson’s nurses.
This year, the meeting’s theme was to ‘Question everything’, to review what we already know, and to think about how clinical observations and cross-team collaborations can drive us forward. Each week we are posting an article to look at the meeting’s speaker sessions in more detail.
