About the course

This course is for experienced health and social care trainers who want to learn how to deliver a 3 hour course on Parkinson's to their colleagues. (You can deliver the course in more than one session if required).

In order to become a UK Parkinson's Excellence Network trained trainer you need to complete two courses and attend a webinar. The first course provides the background knowledge and understanding of Parkinson's. Once you've completed and passed this, you can access the second course which teaches you how to deliver the Parkinson's Explained presentation.

You'll then be able to deliver the Parkinson's Explained session at your place of work, fully endorsed by PDNSA.

You'll also receive a full training pack, allowing you to start delivering the training immediately.

What will you learn?

Once you've finished the course, you'll be able to:

  • Understand the impact of Parkinson's, including motor and non motor symptoms, communication and cognition issues, and management of Parkinson's
  • Evaluate your own practice and care of people with Parkinson's
  • Deliver the Parkinson's Explained training session to your staff
  • Recognise the role of the UK Parkinson's Excellence Network and how you can work with us
