Useful websites for people with Parkinson's disease



The internet unlocks the door to a wealth of information, far greater than any library can hope to provide. There are hundreds of websites related to Parkinsonís disease and their quality ranges from the excellent to the downright misleading.

An excellent general introduction to finding quality health information relevant to your needs is the book ĎThe Patientís Internet Handbookí, by Robert Kiley and Elizabeth Graham, published in 2002 by Royal Society of Medicine Press Ltd, London. ISBN 1 85315 498 9. (regularly updated at www.patient-handbook.co.uk)
