- Better serve our clients who often live outside of regions where they can find help.
- Develop reciprocal partnerships to finance training of health care professionals, from general practitioners to attendants, in the home as well as in the hospital.
- Develop and finance a training program in partnership with the four motor dysfunction clinics and more specifically, with the specialized nurses.
- Increase contribution and support for research with Parkinson Society Canada.
- Contribute to epidemiological studies of Parkinson's Disease in Québec.
