Clinical Services - Parkinson's Nurse Specialist Service
Six Parkinson's Nurse Specialists cover the Metropolitan area and the South West, making home visits and assisting patients with management of the condition.
This innovative service, the first of its kind in Australia, is funded by the Department of Health WA with no charge to clients. This community based nursing service, established in 1998, has been so successful that Parkinson's WA has on many occassions presented this model as world's best practice at conferences and workshops in Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle, Washington (USA), Vienna (Austria), Durban (South Africa) and Glasgow (Scotland).
Members have access to professional advice through a Professional Advisory Panel. A Counsellor and Respite Coordinator are available through affiliation with the Neurological Council of Western Australia.
