The Newly Diagnosed web seminar will discuss how each newly diagnosed patient is different, and the assessment and awareness necessary as a provider to understand each unique patient’s background, life stage and social status, in order to deliver optimal support. We will discuss the palliative care model in Parkinson’s disease, as well as the interdisciplinary approach and initiating at time of diagnosis. This provides not only support to the patient but also can help to prevent caregiver burden and strain.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of patient education, support and development from the point of diagnosis;
  • List ways to gain knowledge and raise awareness of preventing and monitoring for caregiver burden;
  • Describe the palliative care model in Parkinson’s disease; and,  
  • Discuss the interdisciplinary team approach to care.
