Details & Nomination Form

Welcome to the website of the Parkinson’s Disease Nurse Specialist Association (PDNSA).

Based in the UK, the association was established in 1999 to act as an international resource and network for specialist nurses and allied healthcare professionals working in the field of Parkinson’s disease management.

The PDNSA allows professionals to share knowledge, expertise and best practice and provides a support network for members. The PDNSA is completely autonomous but collaborates closely with other organisations to promote the role of the Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist, and to provide developmental opportunities, education and support.

The PDNSA is an influential body involved in the professional development of the Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist role and collaborates closely with other organisations in developing new guidelines and tools. Members have the opportunity to be involved in such projects and have a voice through the PDNSA.

The PDNSA holds an annual conference and collaborates with other organisations in running conferences and study days.

The Transmitter, newsletter of the PDNSA, is produced at regular intervals and is available on the website for members only. It includes latest news and updates, articles written by healthcare professionals, updates from the regional groups in the UK and reports on recent conferences. You will be alerted by email when the latest edition is published.

Use the Forum to network with colleagues, ask for advice, pose a question or just voice an opinion.
