“Parkinson Education Program (PEP) for Community Caregivers is a very worthwhile coninuing education course for anyone working with people with Parkinson’s.

This course is divided into manageable-sized modules that are written concisely and in language easy to understand. The accompnying voiceover helps with focus and comprehension.

Despite many years of nursing, often with people with Parkinson’s and their families, I learned new things from this course which destroys the stereotypes that most of us have and provides caregivers with a glimpse inside the patient’s perspective is key to a successful therapeutic relationship.”
