Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Parkinson's disease awareness course. This introductory e-learning course was developed to meet the requirements of health and social care workers including registered nurses, allied health professionals and health and social care support workers. This Parkinson's disease online course was developed in line with the latest guidance and meets the requirements of regulatory bodies such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Skills for care. 

What is Parkinson's?

Parkinson's disease is a condition in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years.

What are the symptoms of Parkinson's disease?

The three main symptoms of Parkinson's disease are:

  • involuntary shaking of particular parts of the body (tremor) 
  • slow movement
  • stiff and inflexible muscles

A person with Parkinson's disease can also experience a wide range of other physical and psychological symptoms, including:

  • depression and anxiety
  • balance problems – this may increase the chance of a fall
  • loss of sense of smell (anosmis)
  • problems sleeping (insomnia)
  • memory problems

Why is this Parkinson's disease e-learning course important?

Because of the degenerative nature of Parkinson's disease, it is important for caregivers and health & social care staff to have an awareness of the specific needs of each individual. This helps to tailor care to each person affected in line with their needs. 

Is there a cure for Parkinson's disease?

There's currently no cure for Parkinson's and we don't yet know why people get the condition.

But there are lots of different treatments, therapies and support available to help you manage the condition. These will be discussed in this e-learning course.
