What’s missing? A discussion on Parkinson’s research in Northern Ireland (In person event)

My local area theme

What’s on offer?

What are the current challenges in Parkinson’s care and research in Northern Ireland? Join us to discuss these challenges and hear about a dance research project that had a positive impact on those who took part. You can even take part in an interactive dance demonstration! The aim of our discussion is to develop ideas for a Research Interest Group and Support Network that will address key issues in Parkinson’s research and care in Northern Ireland.

This participatory, discussion-based event will begin with a 15-minute presentation on current challenges in Parkinson’s care and research in Northern Ireland followed by a 25-minute presentation on a project about dance that will highlight how research can have a positive impact on those who participate (including an interactive dance demonstration!). These talks and the dance demonstration will lead to a discussion among all attendees that aims to develop ideas for addressing key challenges in Parkinson’s research in Northern Ireland. Both in-person (at QUB) and online (on Zoom) options will be available for this event.

What’s it about?

Parkinson’s is the fastest growing neurological condition worldwide, so unfortunately it will affect many of us during our lifetimes. This event will bring together in a participatory format those interested in developing a Parkinson’s research network that will better set local research priorities in Northern Ireland and increase participation among all stakeholders (e.g., people living with Parkinson’s, researchers, support workers, and more). Those who attend can contribute to this important discussion.

Who’s leading the event?

The event will feature a diverse group of speakers including Anna Carapellotti (Queen’s University Belfast), Anna Murray (Parkinson’s UK), and Liz Nash (Parkinson’s UK)
