Parkinson’s UK Awareness Week 2017 Survey

Survey of UK adults on behalf of Parkinson’s UK on the impact of medication for Parkinson’s.

Public awareness about the impact of medication for Parkinson’s is low.

  • Half (49%) of people are unsure, or wrongly say that it is possible to prevent Parkinson’s.
  • Four in five (83%) are unsure, or incorrectly think that there is no limit to the amount of time Parkinson’s medication works for.
  • Three in five (62%) wrongly believe that Parkinson’s medication does more than mask or ease the symptoms of the condition.
