Target Audience 
The target audience of the 5th World Parkinson Congress included medical doctors, researchers, postdoctoral fellows, nurses, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, students, care partners and people with Parkinson's. Delegates should have an interest in current research on Parkinson's, new care models and treatments for Parkinson's and want to understand best care practices of Parkinson's disease.


Overall Learning Objectives 
The overall Congress objective is to provide an international forum for dialogue on the latest scientific discoveries, medical practices and caregiver initiatives related to Parkinson’s disease (PD). By bringing physicians, neuroscientists, broad range of other health professionals, care partners, and people with Parkinson’s (PwPs) together, we hope to expedite the discovery of a cure, cultivate better treatment practices for those living with PD, and to show the health professionals in attendance that they can learn more about Parkinson's disease by cross-pollinating with experts outside of their daily world.
