Research call-out: Neuropsychological Assessment in Parkinson’s Disease

Jul. 08, 2024

Researchers at University of Queensland’s Centre for Clinical Research are working to improve neuropsychological assessments for earlier and more effective diagnosis of dementia in Parkinson’s disease.

In the first stage of the research they are aiming to engage people as many people as possible with Parkinson’s and their family members across Australia to gain their views and experiences of cognitive assessments and diagnosis of Parkinsons disease dementia.

The project will consist of different forms of participation to choose from such as focus groups over Zoom, or questionnaires completed online.

We are looking for people with Parkinson’s disease or their family care partners, who have undergone a neuropsychological or cognitive assessment, regardless of what the outcome was.

To take part you must be:

  • Aged over 18 years
  • Able to communicate in English sufficiently for the provision of consent and participate in the research activities
  • Have a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease and have undergone a neuropsychological evaluation related to this condition or are a family member or carer of someone with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease who has undergone a neuropsychological evaluation.

If you would like to take part in the research or if you would like to discuss the research please find further details here:
