Association of Physiotherapists in Parkinson's Disease: Europe
AGILE is a Professional Network of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and is for therapists working with older people.
In 2004, the Dutch Physiotherapy Society (KGNF) developed guidelines for physiotherapists working with Parkinson's. They have been updated in collaboration with 19 European physiotherapy associations to create the first European guideline launched in December 2014.
The Guideline is in four parts, and currently only available in English, although translations into other languages are underway.
A briefing to evaluate the clinical and cost effectiveness of physiotherapy in the management and treatment of Parkinson's
Founded in 1894, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy has grown to become the profession's largest membership organisation. It is a member-led organisation governed by an elected Council, providing a wide range of member services and campaign on behalf of all physiotherapy staff and the physiotherapy profession.
The mission of the APPDE is to initiate and support knowledge transfer between physiotherapy clinicians, researchers, educators and managers, members of the multidisciplinary team, people with Parkinson’s, families, policy makers and healthcare providers to promote best practice physiotherapy for people with Parkinson’s across Europe.
A professional society of clinicians, scientists, and other healthcare professionals, who are interested in Parkinson's disease, related neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders
The International Movement Disorder Society

The U.K. Quick Reference Cards
The UK Quick Reference Cards are an adaptation of the 2004 Dutch Guidelines cards to provide standardised guidance for physiotherapists working with people with Parkinson's.
They directly support clinical practice at any stage of Parkinson's in the clinic, on the ward or in the community.
Keeping up with AGILE
Using this resource
AGILE has put together this resource to enable physiotherapists to look up information about Parkinson's and management of people with the condition.
The suggested resources are to complement and not replace searches on databases for specific areas of interest, journal articles and face-to-face courses where both practical skills can be gained, as well as networking with other physiotherapists.
The resource will be reviewed as new information, or updates become available.
A physiotherapy Wiki set up to
'provide open access, open knowledge and open education...through sharing, collaboration and networking'.
