20 participants needed for study of Parkinson’s diagnosis disclosure in the workplace

This research study is looking at the choices people with Parkinson’s make regarding disclosing their diagnosis in the workplace – disclosure vs. non-disclosure, timing and reasons, to gain a better understanding of the issue for future education and advocacy efforts.

In Phase I, the study was piloted by Parkinson Society Central & Northern Ontario, in January 2011, with participants from Ontario. Phase II, launched in June, has expanded the research to include people from communities across Canada. 20 more participants are needed.
