This study explores the day-to-day influence of non-motor symptoms (e.g., sleep, fatigue, mood, pain, cognition) on physical activity behaviours.

We are also assessing the wider use of these questionnaires in clinical studies that may help to inform management strategies for these non-motor symptoms.

We are seeking adults (aged ≥18 years) with a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease or a related condition (e.g., atypical parkinsonisms such as Multiple System Atrophy, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, Corticobasal Degeneration or Dementia with Lewy Bodies)
