Brief Summary in Lay Language

The idiopathic Parkinson’s syndrome is one of the most frequent neurological diseases in higher age. It is
characterized by an advancing neurodegenerative course of disease. For some years now, there are a
number of new therapeutic options for the treatment of the Parkinson’s disease which are able to
postpone long-term complications. These include innovative invasive treatment methods such as intrajejunal infusion therapy L-Dopa for the treatment of Morbus Parkinson, continuous subcutaneous
pump application of apomorphine as well as deep brain stimulation at an advanced stage of Morbus
Parkinson.
These invasive therapeutic methods are technically complex and require a high level of expertise.
However, these therapeutic methods are not part of an established quality assurance program yet. So the
project intends to establish sustainable structures in order to ensure a high quality treatment for patients
with Parkinson’s syndrome treated by one of the innovative invasive treatment methods in Germany.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Background and state of research
Idiopathic Parkinson's syndrome is one of the most common neurological diseases of the elderly, with an
estimated number of 1.2 to 2 million people in Europe. Due to the aging of our society, an increase in the
absolute number of patients with Parkinson's syndrome is expected. For a number of years, a number of
new therapies for the treatment of Parkinson's syndrome have been available, which can postpone the
occurrence of late complications. This also includes innovative invasive therapy methods, e.g. The
intrajejunal infusion therapy L-Dopa for the treatment of Parkinson's disease in the advanced stage, the
continuous subcutaneous pump application of apomorphine in selected indications, and the deep brain
stimulation in advanced stages of Parkinson's disease. The invasive therapy methods mentioned are
technically complex and require a high level of expertise of the participating institutions with regard to
their application. Since these novel therapies are currently not part of statutory quality
assurance procedures, there are no data on the implementation of these measures in clinical practice in
Germany. For this reason, sustainable structures are to be established within the scope of the following
project in order to document the quality of the medical care of patients with Parkinson's Syndrome who
are recruited by means of one of the innovative therapeutic procedures in Germany.
In a first step, a voluntary quality assurance register is established for the process of deep brain
stimulation, in which information about patients undergoing a DBS intervention is collected from
institutions throughout the Federal territory. The basis for this is the quality indicators previously
developed by a multidisciplinary board, which are used to describe the quality of care and to carry out an
external comparison of the quality of the participating institutions in the sense of benchmarking.
