Parkinson’s, as a condition, has an enormous impact on daily living. People with Parkinson’s will develop difficulties with walking, keeping their balance, and may have experienced, or be at risk of falling. For these individuals changing position is challenging, as is the maintenance of a good posture over the course of the disease process. Physiotherapists play a vital role in supporting people with Parkinson’s. In order to make the appropriate clinical decisions, a thorough assessment of the person's physical limitations should be undertaken. This course includes the primary elements of such an assessment, relevant outcome measures, a model for falls assessment and prediction and also important parts of the European Physiotherapy Guidelines for Parkinson’s Disease.


In this course, you will learn about the role of physiotherapists in the management of Parkinson’s, and how to conduct a holistic assessment approach.
