Studies have Been Done to try And Examine the Role of Parkinson’s Nurses

Researchers who are in Northumbria are now embarking on a project that is worth well over £100,000. The whole thing is ultimately aimed at getting a much better understanding of those who treat patients who have Parkinson’s disease. Northumbria University are running the two-year project and the whole thing is being funded by Parkinson’s UK. There is a lot of hope for people to try and develop an evidence-based program that will have a positive impact on both nurses and patients.

This is going to benefit those who work in private nursing and in homecare. Those who work behind the project are noting that Parkinson’s is actually the fastest-growing condition in the world, from a neurological standpoint. On top of this, it lacks a cure. 145,000 people in the UK are having to live with the condition. It has also been highlighted that nurses need to be able to offer a level of critical support, including advice and information.

Dr. Annette Hand, who is an associate professor in midwifery and nursing has stated that they do want to understand the role. They also need to understand the different models in nursing and how they go on to impact the lives of the people who they work with.
The research that is being done is designed to improve the understanding and even extent at which specialist nurses will go to try and help those who have Parkinson’s. It will have a large amount of relevance to the NHS.

At the end of the day, this is hugely important and it is going to provide an evidence base and scope for those who work in the field of nursing. Participation is going to involve completing various surveys and all of these have been developed accordingly.
