Consumer peer reviewer needed for Parkinson's review

Skills / interests: Consumer (public, patient, carer) input

Do you or someone you know have Parkinson's disease? Would you be interested in helping us with this article focused on preventing falls for people with Parkinson's disease?

I am looking for a consumer who would be willing to peer review this Cochrane systematic review, Interventions for preventing falls in Parkinson's disease. Cochrane considers a consumer to be a person with experience of the condition (in this case, Parkinson's disease), either as a patient or as a carer/family member of a patient. From a consumer perspective, we are interested if the language of the review, especially the language used in the Plain Language Summary, is accessible and if it feels relevant for those experiencing Parkinson's disease, such that it will be helpful to patients and carers with healthcare decision making. While consumers are welcome to feedback on any aspect of the review, our aim is for this to be a manageable task, that does not overburden consumer reviewers. 

Ideal applicant

Someone who has experience with Parkinson's disease either themselves or as a carer/family member.

Think you've got what it takes to get the job done for Colleen?
