Patient and Public Engagement

All our researchers work collaboratively with people who have first-hand experiences of movement disorders, both people living with Parkinson's or other related conditions and carers and family members. We are looking for people who come from a range of professions and situations, and want to bring their different skills to help researchers and scientists find better care and treatment options for movement disorders and ultimately a cure. As part of our wider research team, members of our patient and public engagement group help set priorities for research and shape research studies, making them more friendly, accessible and relevant to participants.

For more information about the patient and public engagement group and to learn how you can get involved please contact us at: movementdisorders@ucl.ac.uk

If you would like to learn more about the role of patient and public reviewers in medical science, the NIHR offers a free online course.
Access the public reviewers training course through the NIHR online learning system (no registration required).
