Mapping Parkinson’s Disease Needs and Services in Ireland to inform Service Planning.
Project Aim(s): To support national and local Parkinson’s disease service planning by three linked work packages.
The first maps the prevalence of Parkinson’s disease and service availability for people with Parkinson’s, across each of the nine Community Healthcare Organisation regions in Ireland, to highlight mismatches between population needs and service provision.
The second develops quality indicators for Irish PD services and assesses existing services against these indicators, to demonstrate where extra resources are needed to provide a quality service.
The final work package explores the experience of people with Parkinson’s with respect to services they receive, and their priorities for service provision.
