Trainings vary, but typically include:

  • Two days of lectures
  • Small group discussions and workshops with Parkinson’s experts
  • Mentorship provided by members of a multidisciplinary team for two clinical days in a Parkinson’s center
  • Attendance at a support group
  • Completion of a mentored independent project benefitting nursing education and/or patient care in Parkinson's
