World-renowned Dutch neurologist to speak in Melbourne
Sun 17th Nov 2019 to (2 days)
Parkinson’s Victoria is proud to present Professor Bas Bloem, world-renowned Dutch neurologist and advocate for patient-centred, multi-disciplinary healthcare in Parkinson’s.
Prof. Bloem will be keynote speaker at the inaugural Parkinson’s Smart Health series in November 2019.
Book here if you are living with Parkinson's or keen to know more about the integrated healthcare model.
Book here if you are a medical or healthcare professional interested to learn more (attendance at this event can be claimed as part of CPD hours for your annual AHPRA registration).
Traditionally, a person diagnosed with Parkinson’s would be referred to a neurologist specialising in movement disorders. However, allied health professionals are increasingly recognised as important contributors to the Parkinson’s care team.
At the same time, increases in the way people seek and share knowledge means patients want to be more involved in their healthcare plans and management.
For these reasons, a multi-disciplinary, or team-based, approach to medical and healthcare is increasingly seen as the pinnacle of Parkinson’s care and is the approach advocated by Parkinson’s Victoria.
Prof. Bloem, co-founder of ParkinsonNet, a national network of trained health professionals able to treat Parkinson’s patients in hospital, the community and in their homes, is leading the call for the integrated team-based approach in Parkinson’s to be implemented globally
Parkinson’s Smart Health 2019
In a compelling presentation, Prof. Bloem will share both the health and economic benefits of the integrated model of care. He will be joined by local champions of the multi-disciplinary health care model.
Although focussed on Parkinson’s healthcare, these presentations would also benefit patients living with, and healthcare professionals working with individuals impacted by, other chronic, progressive conditions presenting differing motor and non-motor symptoms.
