Abstract

Background Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative condition that is the most common form of movement disorder. Caring for people with Parkinson's requires the skills and expertise of a Parkinson's disease and movement disorders nurse specialist (PDMDNS) (Bramble, Carroll, & Rossiter, 2018). The World Health Organisation has identified the importance of monitoring health workforce demographics and distribution trends in order to effectively plan for health care needs (WHO 2016). This is the third publication of an annual series reviewing the longitudinal trends of the PDMDNS workforce in Australia (Williams et al. 2021, Williams et al. 2023).
