Welcome To 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.
