Research is a major emphasis of this programme at the National Neuroscience Institute. Both patient-based and laboratory-based research are conducted at the Institute under strict ethical guidelines. Doctors and scientists work together closely to understand the causes and find better means to treat patients with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. Patients who are interested to participate in these research initiatives are encouraged to approach their treating doctors.
Community Care Partners Programme (CCPP)
In October 2007, our Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorders Centre initiated Singapore’s first-ever organised outreach programme for the Parkinson community. The NNI-CCPP is a programme that aims to enhance the delivery of community care and support to the Parkinson community by tapping on the well-integrated network of community healthcare facilities in Singapore. The NNI and its CCPP partners work together to ensure that the PD community receives the best possible coordinated care. Our CCPP Partners help provide the crucial link between NNI and the PD patients in the community.
NNI Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorders Centre
The Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorders Centre at the National Neuroscience Institute (PDMDC NNI) is dedicated to the comprehensive care, research, education and training into Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders. We have a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals and research scientists, through a unique partnership between NNI and two major hospitals in Singapore: Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) and Singapore General Hospital (SGH).
Since 2006, our Centre has been designated as a Parkinson's Foundation (PF) Centre of Excellence. This is a designation awarded by the PF to healthcare institutions that excel in Parkinson-related comprehensive care, research and community outreach programmes. NNI is proud to be one of the two PF Centre of Excellence in Asia.
