Online Treating Parkinson’s 2015 Nationwide (Ireland) Survey
Treating Parkinson's 2015 is a nationwide survey which aims to gather information about the way we are treating Parkinson's disease in Ireland. We hope that the anonymous information gathered after completion of this survey will shine a light on the issues people with Parkinson's disease deal with on a daily basis in 2015 in Ireland. Information obtained directly from people affected by Parkinson's disease is particularly powerful when campaigning for more resources to plan services for the future.
