Ensuring Better Care For Everyone

Health & Wellness

Today, only 10% of people diagnosed with Parkinson’s in the United States are receiving the best care. That is unacceptable. The Parkinson’s Foundation is accelerating its efforts to address this inequity so people with Parkinson’s get the care they need, wherever they live. Providing state-of-the-art care through our global network To ensure the best care and consistency of treatment for Parkinson’s patients, the foundation has certified 45 premier treatment and research centers worldwide. These Centers of Excellence are renowned for outstanding performance in Parkinson’s research, care and outreach. Over the next few years, we will significantly increase the number of Centers of Excellence in the network, greatly expanding our overall coverage, and facilitate innovative solutions like telemedicine care to reach the 90% of people who are not receiving care from trained specialists. Training professionals to provide expert care Responding to a nationwide shortage of trained specialists, we are closing the gap in PD professional training by educating physicians, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language therapists and social workers. The next generation of healthcare professionals must be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide comprehensive care with a focus on the specific needs of individuals living with PD.
