While waiting for the warm weather to arrive, there is something you can do to move Parkinson’s research forward. From the warmth and comfort of your own home, you can take an online survey and/or questionnaire and participate in Parkinson’s research.
The survey and questionnaire listed below can be completed online or completed on a paper copy.
This survey of Parkinson’s patients (with and without Deep Brain Stimulation) is conducted by The Parkinson Alliance and DBS-STN. Their current survey is "Health-Related Quality of Life in Patients with Parkinson's Disease: Comparing those with and without Deep Brain Stimulation." It takes about a half-hour to complete online.
