Event | Parkinson's and Technology, a series of 3 Meetings - Part 2
Saturday, February 27, 2021 - 14:00
A joint event of SIGP@T & DRIG & WPC
Parkinson's is a disease with many faces: each patient develops individual symptoms and a unique
course of the disease. What they have in common is the impediment to daily life. Fundamental issues
for some PwP may not occur for others or will have been solved.
We will focus on tools to manage everyday tasks that can become insurmountable problems due to
the symptoms of the disease. Three presentations will address this topic:
● Dr Katherine Fletcher talks about non-drug therapies and devices.
● Dr Wan-Fai Ng shows ways to measure and manage fatigue.
● Julie Dodd describes the potential of Apps for PwP and their limitations.
In addition to these professional approaches, we want to draw on the wealth of experience of PwP
and their carers. They are confronted with the problems on a daily basis and are therefore the best
experts whose knowledge is invaluable. We want to discuss these experiences in moderated
breakout sessions and then present them in plenary.
For participants who want to familiarise themselves with the techniques, a separate technology
breakout session is planned; there, terms such as AI, machine learning or data mining will be
explained and their potentials for intelligent solutions will be outlined.
A panel discussion will conclude the event.
Attendance at this event is free of charge, but reservations are required.
