Personalised care for people with Parkinson's Disease Study
PD-Care is a five-year study programme, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and sponsored by Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. The study aims to develop and evaluate a self-management toolkit to personalise and improve care for people with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) living at home.
If you have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and are living at home in the community, we would like to invite you to consider taking part in our study or joining our Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) group.
The study is collaboration between two departments within University College London. The Department of Clinical and Movement Neurosciences within UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, and Centre for Ageing Population Studies, within the Institute of Epidemiology and Healthcare. The study is led by the Royal Free Hospital London, who are working with researchers at Kings College London, the Homerton, Luton and Dunstable and East Herts NHS Hospital Trusts, and with people affected by Parkinson’s.
