The quality of life of Parkinson’s patients depends on the quality and multidisciplinary nature of the care they receive. For this reason, the Fresco Parkinson Institute Italia has decided to dedicate its mission to the training of Doctors, Physiotherapists, Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Neuropsychologists, Nurses, and other non-health staff involved in the management of the disease.

The Fresco Academy offers accredited courses at its headquarters in Fiesole and at external locations dedicated to multidisciplinary management of movement disorders and held by the leading Italian and international experts.

Particular attention will focus on the training of family members and caregivers in order to provide them with the tools that allow correct supervision of the multiple problems of the disease in respect of the safety of the patient.

The courses offer CME credits for health care personnel.
