Editorial and fact-checking process
Each piece of content is carefully selected and written with the Parkinson’s community in mind. Sources for news stories and resource pages include peer-reviewed studies, press releases, announcements, interviews, webinars, and conference sessions, among others. All articles go through a stringent fact-checking and editing process to ensure they are accurate, objective, comprehensive, and well-explained.
Our columns are written by Parkinson’s patients and caregivers who provide an intimate look at what it’s like to live with the disease. Their stories offer a realistic first-hand account of various aspects of the disease, in addition to providing inspiration and hope to our patient communities. While columns are largely opinion and perspective pieces, each one still goes through a comprehensive editing and fact-checking process to ensure clarity, accuracy, and fairness.
