Making a Parkinson's disease diagnosis poses unique challenges. As our population ages, Parkinson’s is now one of the most common neurodegenerative conditions, behind Alzheimer's. Yet many clinicians have not received extensive training in how to care for and manage PD patients. Our course fills the educational gap so that we can improve care for this patient population.
Here is what you’ll be able to do after completing our course.
- Evaluate PD patients with precision: gain mastery in conducting thorough motor examinations specific to Parkinson’s disease.
- Discern between PD and its mimics: acquire the expertise to differentiate Parkinson’s disease from similar conditions through comprehensive evaluation.
- Tailor optimal therapies: learn to determine personalized initial therapies for individual patients, addressing medication side effects, and managing motor complications effectively.
- Manage motor and non-motor symptoms: develop strategies to evaluate and treat both motor and non-motor symptoms, improving overall patient care.
How confident are you in your ability to differentiate Parkinson’s disease from its look-alikes and correctly diagnose it? There is a gap in comprehensive training related to this complex disease and we are excited to bring you up to speed!
Dive into this course as we cover pathophysiology, evaluate common motor and non-motor symptoms, learn how to initiate the best therapy, and more!
