Make Parkinson’s a Priority is the Action Framework created by Parkinson’s Australia, all State-based Parkinson’s organisations, Shake It Up Australia and the Parkinson’s community to reflect the needs of people living with, and affected by Parkinson’s.
The Parkinson’s community asks the Government to Make Parkinson’s a Priority through:
Recognition of Parkinson’s as a National Health Priority Area;
Investment in better care and support for people living with Parkinson’s through access to Parkinson's Nurse Specialists and equitable access to medications and therapies;
Investment in upskilling the workforce to enable timely diagnosis, better care and support of people living with Parkinson’s;
Investment and capacity building in Parkinson’s research.
Parkinson’s Australia is seeking a commitment from the Commonwealth and States to a best practice, evidence based and nationally consistent approach to supporting people living with Parkinson’s and for investment in research to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for Parkinson’s.
Parkinson’s Australia launched the Parkinson's Australia Action Framework at a Parliamentary breakfast on 15 March 2016.
