Brief Summary:

The purpose of the Parkinson's disease Registry is to develop a national and international database of persons with Parkinson's disease (PD). The Registry will be used to facilitate the development of new therapies and healthcare services to improve the quality of life for people with PD. It will also be a means for investigators in the field of PD to quickly identify and notify subjects about other research studies for which they are eligible.

Objectives include:

  • Assess current treatment approaches and develop best-practice guidelines
  • Track the functional abilities, access to healthcare and cost of illness of people with PD over time
  • Drive the development of innovative research projects
  • Accelerate the process of informing patients of research projects for which they may be eligible
