The ATTP program includes an independent evaluation of its effectiveness. Results demonstrate that ATTP produces not only significant knowledge gain, which is retained over time, but a palpable excitement and renewed interest in working with persons with Parkinson's, previously thought to be untreatable. Trainees leave with a better understanding of the role and use of other professions, and an approach where providing "the right care at the right time" for each family affected by Parkinson's disease is paramount.
