Recently Diagnosed Seminar – September
Online session via Zoom (map)
Thu 30th Sep 2021, 4:00pm to 5:30pm (1 day, 1 hour, 30 minutes)
A diagnosis of Parkinson’s is life-changing and it’s normal to feel overwhelmed by what this means. For many people, it’s is only after leaving doctor’s surgery that questions come bubbling to the surface.
That’s why Parkinson’s Victoria’s Recently Diagnosed Seminars are so important – and valued by the many people who have attended them.
RDS sessions provide a welcoming environment in which individuals and their families can understand diagnosis and connect with others facing a similar situation.
You will come away with the knowledge and tools to build a foundation for improved self-management and care. This includes symptom management strategies and information on the many support services that are available.
In line with Government-regulated COVID-19 restrictions, Parkinson’s Victoria will commence its 2021 RDS program online so you can safely access information from the comfort of your own home.
The sessions are led by a Parkinson’s Victoria specialist nurse and includes time for questions. It also includes a presentation by an individual living with Parkinson’s, facing similar challenges to your own.
Each RDS will consist of two 1.5 hour sessions, held across two consecutive days. It is recommended that you attend both sessions to gain the most out of the information being presented.
These free sessions are designed for people who have been diagnosed within the past five years. Family members are also welcome to attend. Webinar access links will be provided on registration.
This session will run on Thursday 30 September and Friday 1 October from 4pm to 5.30pm.
