Parkinson’s disease is a chronic, complex neurological disorder that involves multiple body systems. We know this chiefly to be a disease that complicates movement, but we have learned there are many other non-motor symptoms, which can be major determinants to quality of life. We will review these non-motor symptoms and discuss psychiatric manifestations of the disease to increase awareness and treatment.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

    • Define and identify non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease;
    • Understand potential time points in disease progression with respect to non-motor symptom presentation &
    • List treatment options and appropriate specialists to refer to if needed.
