Vacation as medication

  • Patients200

What does this project entail?

“Vacation as medication” is a research study in which we would like to gain more insight into the effects of vacation on symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Last year, a pilot study was conducted on this topic.


Why this project?

Many people feel better physically and mentally when they’re on vacation. We would like to examine if this is also the case for people with Parkinson’s disease. Also we would like to learn more about which factors reduce symptoms and which factors increase symptoms. We are curious to hear about your vacation experiences: have you noticed any differences in your Parkinson symptoms?

Will I benefit from participating?

There will be no benefits for you participating in this research study. The results of the study will be used to explore what the effects of vacation are on the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. By filling out this survey, you are helping us gaining new insights into Parkinson’s disease. Because of this your participation is of great value to us.

Anyone that is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and at least 18 years old can participate in this study. However, you must have been on vacation at least once between October 2016 and May 2019. This can be a long vacation, but also a weekend. A vacation is defined as not sleeping at home for two consecutive nights.
