Currently, the network includes physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech & language therapists, and neurologists. To become member of ParkinsonNet Luxembourg, you have to complete a three-day fundamental training. Future trainings will be advertised on this site, so please regularly check this site in order to find the next opportunity to follow the training.

As next professions, we plan to include dietitians, social workers and (neuro-)psychologists.

In addition, several criteria have to be met in order to become and stay member of ParkinsonNet Luxembourg.

Criteria therapists have to agree to before joining ParkinsonNet Luxembourg:

  • Willingness to take an active part in the exchanges in the multi- and interdisciplinary network of ParkinsonNet. Have a high degree of responsiveness to the different ways of communication.
  • Willingness to work according to the evidence-based guidelines.
  • The ParkinsonNet membership is personal and does not extend to the group or corporation that the member works for (e.g. group practice, care network, hospital).
  • Your name and work address will be publicly announced on the ParkinsonNet website (therefore accessible to health professionals, prescribers and the general public).
  • Attending a ParkinsonNet three day basic training session.
  • As the primary communication language of ParkinsonNet Luxembourg is English, a proficient understanding of English is required
