As people with Parkinson’s (PwP), we have to make huge decisions about our health and often have to assess the prospective risks and benefits of new treatments and/or participating in clinical trials.  But how do we know whether we are using the right criteria to make these potentially life changing decisions? 

This research meeting asked searching questions of representatives from the scientific, clinical, ethical and patient communities and addressed key facts that need to be understood by PwP in order to make informed and good decisions.
