The EPDA’s Move for Change campaign is the largest online European patient survey on standards of care in Parkinson’s to date. The survey was designed to identify any areas of care falling short of the standards set by the EPDA’s Charter for People with Parkinson’s and current clinical guidelines.
The results of the survey are available in a number of formats throughout this section of the website, but a great place to start is to download the booklet on the right (simply click on the image to download).
The booklet contains the key European results, which have been presented in easy-to-understand infographics. We believe it is essential to communicate quickly and simply the survey’s core findings – that people with Parkinson’s are not receiving the standards of care that disease specialists recognise as being best practice.
Within the booklet, two eminent Parkinson’s specialists argue that the Move for Change data can assist healthcare professionals and policymakers in improving the level of care for people with Parkinson’s and their families across Europe. We agree with them. If you do too, then we would love to hear from you, and urge you to spread the word about the need for change.
