CARE PARTNER WEBINARS


At our triennial World Parkinson Congresses, people with Parkinson’s and care partners (CPs) play an active role in the program design. One area that is informed by care partners at each WPC is the Care Partner Lounge. The Lounge is an active space designed for CPs to come together to learn, connect, relax and be inspired. After the 5th World Parkinson Congress in 2019, we received feedback from care partners globally who indicated they wished they could be a part of the Care Partner Lounge, but due to travel inhibitions they could not partake in the activities. It was this feedback that inspired us to survey the community. Based on the feedback that came back to us from the CPs we surveyed, we decided to take the Care Partner Lounge virtual.

SCIENCE WEBINARS

The World Parkinson Coalition® hosts the most unique international conference in the Parkinson’s space every three years by bringing together basic scientists, neurologists, general physicians, nurses, social workers, rehab specialists as well as people with Parkinson’s (PwP) and care partners to learn, share, and build collaborations.

WPC was founded on the belief that the research of basic and clinical scientists is enriched by the insights provided by the people with Parkinson’s and those who care for them. We also think it’s crucial that PwP and their families have a chance to meet and hear directly from the researchers who are working to find better treatments and a cure. This interaction gives PwP and families dignity as contributors to the science and new treatments that will bring them a better quality of life and offers them hope for the future.

These science webinars are designed to be accessible to the masses while offering the the most current information to the viewers. Currently you can view three virtual panels that were offered by faculty from the WPC 2019 who spoke about the same topics they were planning to cover at the Congress. This was a way to ensure our friends who could not join us in Kyoto could also hear directly from, and interact with, these world renowned experts. Over time, we will rotate out older content for fresh content.

If there are other topics you’d like to see covered, or you would like to sponsor a webinar, please email info@worldpdcoalition.org.
