Latest Updates

Movement disorder congress

The EJS ACT-PD team were thrilled to attend and present at the recent MDS Congress in Madrid! The congress provided an amazing opportunity to further our understanding of the latest management strategies and research outcomes for Parkinson’s disease. Our brilliant Clinical Research Fellows presented 6 posters detailing all of our Working Groups amazing progress over the past year. You can find these on our ‘Updates and Outcomes’ page!


PPIE Wider Network

We are looking for people with Parkinson’s and carers / partners, with an interest in research to form a wider network for the EJS ACT-PD project! Members of this network would be contacted with requests for further input when our Patient and Public Inclusion and Engagement (PPIE) Working Group feel wider contribution would be helpful. This might include being sent surveys, being asked to vote on options or being contacted to input on discussions. Find out more on our ‘Get involved‘ page!

Communications Team

We are excited to have recently set up our Communications subgroup! The group is comprised of members from each Working Group and the Core Management Team to include a range of different stakeholder perspectives. The Communications group have been tasked with devising the project’s overall communication strategy, engagement with our target audiences and improving internal communications processes. We are looking forward to bringing you further project updates soon!   


Project Overview

The EJS ACT-PD Consortium is comprised of 6 Working Groups, an overarching Steering Group and an International Advisory Group. Whilst each Working Group is focused on a specific element of the project, they work collaboratively to reach consensus on all decisions made.
