To moderate the wearing-off phenomenon between medication doses seen in Parkinson’s disease, advanced therapies like infusions or injections are often needed. But it can be daunting to administer these treatments if you aren’t familiar with how they work! In this course, we’ve brought in an expert nurse educator to demonstrate the setup and administration of continuous infusion pumps and injectable pens.
Here is what you’ll be able to do after completing this course.
- Administer continuous apomorphine therapy using a pump.
- Administer levodopa / carbidopa / entacapone gel therapy with a pump.
- Administer levodopa / carbidopa intestinal gel therapy with a pump.
- Give apomorphine injections using a pen.
