As our aging population is causing an increase in those living with neurological conditions, clinicians are continually striving for the best possible care. MA Healthcare are delighted to invite you to our 18th national Parkinson’s conference.

We bring together the leaders in the field to continue to translate research into a clinical setting. Dr Tom Foltynie explores the potential for disease modifying treatments and Dr Alison Yarnall poses the question ‘Is dementia inevitable in Parkinson’s?’

Every hour someone in the UK is told that they have Parkinson’s. Professor Huw Morris examines diagnosis with tips on distinguishing the different types of Parkinsonism’s and Professor David Brooks covers the advances in imaging to aid this process.

In 2017, there will be an update of the Parkinson’s NICE guidelines. We hear from two members of the development group on their respective topics. Fiona Lindop presents up-to-date thinking on different types of exercise therapy. Dr Robin Fackrell tackles the challenges in palliative care after the BBC branded around the clock care ‘not good enough’.

The day will also provide you with a great opportunity to network with colleagues and to earn 6 CPD points.
