Parkinson’s disease patients face myriad symptoms, including those affecting the motor system and mobility function and those presenting as non-motor symptoms. Among the non-motor symptoms, issues affecting the cognitive, neuropsychiatric and autonomic systems, as well as sleep, are common. This web seminar will present an overview of non-motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease, followed by a presentation of the under-recognized skin issues in Parkinson’s disease. 

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Identify common non-motor issues in Parkinson’s disease, including those affecting cognition, neuropsychiatric status, autonomic system and sleep;
  • Discuss common autonomic issues in Parkinson’s disease, including those affecting the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems;
  • Describe common autonomic issues that affect the integumentary system, including seborrhea, dermatitis, and hyperhidrosis; and,
  • Identify additional skin issues related to Parkinson’s disease including melanoma, skin reactions to medications and issues affecting the integumentary system due to problems with mobility.
