Dr Emily Henderson, along with some members of the PRIME-Parkinson Dutch team have had a paper accepted in Lancet Neurology. The paper, entitled ‘Integrated and patient-centred management of Parkinson’s disease: a network model for reshaping chronic neurological care’ looks into how existing care models are not set up to meet the needs of patients with chronic neurological conditions and proposes to re-shape the future of this care.
You can read the paper here:
The PRIME team have co-authored a comprehensive review of COVID-19 in older people.
Over 1100 peer-reviewed and pre-print papers were screened, to form a basis for future research in COVID-19 and older people.
The paper is published in Age and Ageing and you can read Dr Fiona Lithander’s blog post too.
We are pleased to announce that a paper by Dr Emma Tenison and the PRIME team was published in the open access Hindawi journal Parkinson’s Disease.
The paper ‘Proactive and Integrated Management and Empowerment in Parkinson’s Disease: Designing a New Model of Care’ proposes a novel approach designed to deliver integrated, multidisciplinary care, and empower Parkinson’s Disease patients and their carers.

The PRIME Parkinson Project Board Meeting took place on 09 March 2020. Members of the UK Team were based in Bristol, the Dutch team in Nijmegen, and representatives from the funding body Gatsby, and other key stakeholders were based in London. Nonetheless, a successful videoconference allowed the meeting to progress as planned. If you look closely at the photo, you will see our colleagues on the screen!
This is an exciting opportunity to join The Ageing and Movement Research Group in the Department of Population Health Sciences, Bristol Medical School at the University of Bristol. You will take the lead on providing physiotherapy input into a programme of research called PRIME-Parkinson (Proactive and Integrated Management and Empowerment in Parkinson’s Disease). PRIME-Parkinson will see the implementation of a new integrated care model aimed specifically for people with Parkinson’s disease. It is designed to manage problems proactively, deliver integrated, multidisciplinary care and empower patients and their carers.
