Priority setting partnership to identify the top 10 research priorities for the management of Parkinson's disease.
Bottom Line: The overarching research aspiration was an effective cure for PD.The top 10 research priorities for PD management included the need to address motor symptoms (balance and falls, and fine motor control), non-motor symptoms (sleep and urinary dysfunction), mental health issues (stress and anxiety, dementia and mild cognitive impairments), side effects of medications (dyskinesia) and the need to develop interventions specific to the phenotypes of PD and better monitoring methods.These research priorities identify crucial gaps in the existing evidence to address everyday practicalities in the management of the complexities of PD.
