Diagnosing and treating Parkinson’s disease  (Learn about idiopathic Parkinson’s disease (PD) and differential diagnosis, pathology of PD, causes of PD, stages of progression and immediate management.)
Parkinson’s motor symptoms and treatment options  (Learn about motor symptoms such as tremor, rigidity, postural instability, freezing, on/off, walking or gait difficulties, vocal symptoms, dystonia and the wide range of treatment options for these symptoms.)
Mental health and Parkinson’s disease  (Learn about the emotional, psychological and social well-being of patients with a deep dive on anxiety and depression and the factors that can exacerbate these symptoms such as poor sleep, fatigue, pain and REM behavior disorder as well as available treatment options for these symptoms.)
Cognition and Parkinson’s disease  (Learn about mild cognitive impairment, hallucinations, psychosis and neuropsychological testing as well as treatment options to address these issues.)
Genetics and Parkinson’s disease  (Learn about the current knowledge of genetics and PD, why a patient should get genetic testing, what they need to know before getting tested and why researchers can benefit from understanding which genes are implicated in PD.)
Medication management for Parkinson’s disease  (Learn about managing medications for PD. This can often be quite complicated since, as the disease progresses, medications lose their efficacy and need to be titrated. Each person with PD requires different medication management, and these unique needs require constant attention and care.)
Parkinson’s: preventing hospitalization and what to do when it happens  (Learn about the dangers of hospitalization for people with Parkinson’s (PwPs), how to keep PwPs out of the hospital and what do when PwPs are hospitalized to ensure their stay is as safe and as short as possible.)
Rehabilitation for Parkinson’s disease  (Learn about why PwPs should be referred promptly for physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech language pathology to help prepare them for the challenges ahead.)
Medical marijuana and Parkinson’s disease  (Learn about the current evidence around medical marijuana and its impact on people with PD.)
