These courses are based on information provided in the highly popular Fight Parkinson’s education seminars and include an introduction to the disease and information on the common motor and non-motor symptoms experienced and how to manage them.

Understanding Parkinson's is a course designed to help family, friends, colleagues and carers understand the condition and how it impacts a person living with it.

The Recently Diagnosed course covers treatment options, the benefits of creating a multi-disciplinary team to support a person living with Parkinson's and information to help people live well with the condition.

People can learn in their own time and at their own pace, pausing and continuing as suits them.

Offering a free online education program means anyone can access the information they need, regardless of their personal circumstances.


The current courses cover topics such as:

What is Parkinson's?

Parkinson's diagnosis

Motor symptoms

Non-motor symptoms

Treatment options  

Planning ahead       

Building your health team

Managing your symptoms

Keeping healthy and living well
