Education & Training

The Parkinson’s Foundation and Parkinson Study Group have partnered on patient engagement in research design and implementation for ten years. As part of this partnership, we are pleased to provide training resources for study coordinators.

Our first resource contains three videos:

Research Education
1. An introductory video to the research process
2. An overview of patient engagement in research
3. An introductory video to our patient engagement in research work

Stay tuned for more resources on how research is conducted. By the end of this year, the Parkinson’s Foundation will launch a free, open access, online course covering topics including information on ethics and informed consent, analyzing and interpreting research and recruiting representative populations into research.Patient Engagement in Research.
