Abstract

Parkinson's is the second most common neurological disorder. Assessment and treatment needs to be adapted to accommodate the wide range of motor and non-motor symptoms seen in Parkinson's. People with Parkinson's (PwP) present with a unique combination of neuromusculoskeletal symptoms which require a range of different therapeutic approaches to effectively manage. Among the several learning outcomes that Quality Assured Practitioners need to be aware of are: understanding the importance of focused, goal-centred treatment and early intervention; being aware of the benefits of exercise and how to guide adaptations of exercise for the Parkinson's community.
