​AGED CARE TRAINING

Parkinson’s Australia’s new Aged Care Training Package called Caring for People with Parkinson’s is now available nationally. It is designed to educate and inform all the staff of Residential Aged Care Facilities to improve the quality of care provided for residents living with Parkinson’s. 

For more detail and access please see the Parkinson’s Australia website article.

ADVICE FOR NURSES

The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) in association with Parkinson’s WA have developed a Parkinson’s Care post-graduate unit of study.  The subject is integrated within a graduate certificate of the ACN courses or can be enrolled as a stand-alone subject.  The subject will  help new Parkinson’s nurses entering the field to have a good foundation to build on and for existing Parkinson’s nurses to consolidate their knowledge.   The course is expected to be available early in the 2nd half of 2018. 

​For more detail and access please see the Parkinson’s Australia website article.

​ADVICE FOR PHYSIOTHERAPISTS

The www.physiotherapyexercises.com website enables physiotherapists to search for exercises including those appropriate for people living with Parkinson’s and then compile them into individualised booklets for patients.  The booklets can be exported in different formats including Word, HTML and PDF, and can then be printed, emailed or sent to patients’ mobile devices. The Physiotherapyexercises.com website is available in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese.
