The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society is hosting its third summer school for nurses specialising in Parkinson’s.

The course – which will be held from 10-12 May in Ljubljana, Slovenia – will focus on the management of the motor and non-motor symptoms of the condition. Students will also attend lectures, examine Parkinson’s patients and discuss treatment plans with experts. All lectures will be presented in English.

Heather Vitale, senior programme manager at the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society, said: “This course offers a unique opportunity for nurses to enhance their knowledge in Parkinson’s disease, while also learning and networking with their peers through case study presentations and small group discussions.”

Registration closes 26 April 2019 and costs USD $350.
