Could physical therapy be the future of specialised Parkinson’s care in Brazil?

Parkinson’s Life is an online ‘lifestyle’ magazine for people affected by Parkinson’s disease. Last month NeuroMat's AMPARO initiative was recognized as an outstanding initiative inside Brazil to promote collaboration between people with Parkinson’s and health professionals, in order to face clinical challenges via online lectures to improve the quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s. As an excerpt, we can read:

"Although there is a clear deficit regarding specialised Parkinson’s care in our country, I would like to highlight the good research centres in Brazil, such as the AMPARO network, developed in 2016 by the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centre for Neuromathematics. The network was developed to promote collaboration between people with Parkinson’s and health professionals, in order to face clinical challenges via online lectures to improve the quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s."Parkinson’s Life website, 28/01/2018.
