Interprofessional Workshop: Movement and Mobility in Parkinson's Disease

 


The registration for this event is now closed.
Thank you for the overwhelming response!

 

 

Parkinson’s disease results in substantial motor and non-motor symptoms which are disabling and distressing to the patient, family and society. This workshop provides participants with an evidence-based update on the understanding of the physiology of the movement disorders common in Parkinson’s, their assessments and management within a multidisciplinary setting. Physical, medical and psychological enablers and barriers to movement and mobility and strategies to overcome these barriers will be explored via lectures, practicals and case discussions.
