This presentation will comprehensively review the etiology, signs, symptoms and treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, we will explore the risks associated with hospital stays in this vulnerable population and review tools that may play an active role in their care. This web seminar will explain how to prepare an individual with Parkinson’s disease and-or their care partner for a planned or unplanned hospital visit, and how to develop strategies for the best care possible during an inpatient stay.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Describe the risks associated with hospital stays for those with Parkinson’s;
- List strategies to ensure quality care for patients with Parkinson’s;
- List techniques Parkinson’s patients can use in self advocacy; and,
- Identify resources to help patients with Parkinson’s continue quality care at home.
