Learning from Parkinson's Disease

Have you heard about Participatory Medicine? 

At the ABN last week we have a masterful presentation from Prof. Bas Bloem, a neurologist from the Nijmegen in the Netherlands. He is really pushing the bubble in terms of service development in the Parkinson's Disease (PD) space. He is a big proponent of so-called 'Participatory Medicine'. The latter is something we at Barts-MS are trying to do with our MS Service. If you have the time could you please watch the TEDx talk below and let us know your thoughts. We are interested in hearing about your experiences, good or bad, about participating in your own healthcare.

Our self-monitoring initiative and patient-activation programmes could be view as Participatory Medicine. Are you already your own neurologist?
