During September, Parkinson’s Victoria will host an Australian-first “Living Well” seminar addressing the long-term challenges for those who have been living with the condition for more than seven years.
The two-day educational event will bring together health care professionals and those affected by Parkinson’s from across Australia to learn, share and discuss treatment options, care challenges and lifestyle choices.
The seminar runs from 11 to 12 September, and is being held as part of Parkinson’s Awareness Week. It will feature presentations from medical experts including Professor Malcolm Horne, Dr Andrew Evans, Dr Wesley Thevathasan, Dr Luke and Mary Jones.
Health care professionals will receive important information about the latest treatment advances including deep brain stimulation and a multidisciplinary team approach to caring for long-term sufferers.
