The Parkinson’s UK Exercise Framework

The seminar will cover the background to the exercise framework and discuss the process of developing the framework. The aim of the framework and the seminar will be to consider how physical activity can be incorporated into the management of Parkinson’s. There will be an overview of the evidence for exercise and discussion of how this was incorporated into the framework. The exercise framework aims to provide tailored advice regardless of disease stage and the seminar will consider ways that health care professions can enable people with Parkinson’s to exercise. It is also important to acknowledge potential barriers to exercise and some of the complexities of maintaining activity levels when living with Parkinson’s.
