Welcome to the PDNSA

Welcome to the website of the Parkinson’s Disease Nurse Specialist Association (PDNSA).

Based in the UK, the association was established in 1999 to act as an international resource and network for specialist nurses and allied healthcare professionals working in the field of Parkinson’s disease management.

The PDNSA allows professionals to share knowledge, expertise and best practice and provides a support network for members. The PDNSA is completely autonomous but collaborates closely with other organisations to promote the role of the Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist, and to provide developmental opportunities, education and support.

Beyond efficacy and safety, what else influences prescription decisions
for neurodegenerative diseases

We have developed an online survey (using data from focus group findings and review of the literature) to help us understand the factors that influence clinician prescribing. The survey is completely anonymous and will take approximately 25 minutes to complete. Respondents can use their mobile phone, desktop, or tablet to access the survey.
