The evidence-based briefing highlights the best clinical evidence and service delivery for the condition, Anna Jones, one of the expert contributors to the leaflet, told Frontline.

Dr Jones is honorary president of AGILE, the CSP professional network for physiotherapists working with older people. She said the leaflet enables AGILE and the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Neurology to provide information to people living with Parkinson’s, their families and decision makers.

‘We are fortunate that the number of controlled clinical trials published each year in the field of physiotherapy and Parkinson’s has been rising fast over the past decade,’ said Dr Jones.

She added that the data collected from clinical trials are being used to provide a better estimate of the effects of different interventions.

The other contributors to the leaflet are Bhanu Ramaswamy, independent physiotherapy consultant; Fiona Lindop, specialist physiotherapist at Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust; and Dr Victoria Goodwin, senior research fellow at the University of Exeter Medical School.
