This web seminar will focus on the detection and effective treatment of non-motor symptoms beyond traditional Parkinson’s Disease (PD) medications. The presenter will address how non-motor symptoms such as impaired sense of smell, sleep behavior changes, constipation and depression may be present years before the classic motor features of PD appear. Participants will take away recommendations on how to cope and live optimally with these non-motor symptoms.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Identify that non-motor symptoms, such as impaired olfaction, REM sleep behavior disorder, pain, constipation and depression may be present years before the classic motor features of PD appear;
- Identify that non-motor features frequently become the most troublesome features of PD as it advances; and,
- Describe treatment other than traditional PD medications that may be needed for non-motor features of PD.
