PD MED is a large national research study of treatments for Parkinson’s disease.
What do I do when a patient’s diagnosis changes?
Please continue collecting data when a patient’s diagnosis changes. This is best explained to the patient by either the clinician or nurse to help return rates of patient forms.
Which drugs should I record on Follow Up forms?
Only include drugs that are related to Parkinson’s disease, anti-psychotics and anti-depressants.
When do I complete Follow Up forms for a patient?
We will send you forms for your patients when they are due - this will be annually at the date of randomisation so please try to arrange patient appointments for roughly around the date of randomisation.
What do I do if I’m interested in taking part?
The study is closed to recruitment so unfortunately it is no longer possible to open new sites for PD MED.
