The Peninsula Parkinson’s Research Interest Group turns the Zoom camera on the other end of the stick, the people who participate in research as the target of a novel treatment. John and Sue Whipps give a presentation about their journey from his diagnosis to their involvement in clinical trials, explaining the issues they dealt with along the way. They take questions from a Panel and explore the challenge of finding and motivating people to get involved.
There are strong messages here about involvement, the pay-back from it, and the contribution a partner can make. This video is aimed at those who are recently diagnosed and those further down the track who are open to the possibility of participation. We promise a jargon-free experience.
The video is 20 minutes long and the Panel session a further 25 minutes. We hope you find “Not Just a Load of Old Tablets” useful and enjoyable!
