Session Summary

With the expected increase in PD as the population ages, knowledge of PD management will allow pharmacists to better optimize care.

Management of Parkinson’s disease is becoming more complex. New information is available on biomarkers, motor and nonmotor symptoms, medications, management guidelines, and results of long-term studies for disease modification. Additionally, there is a need for continuing education on clinical aspects of PD that utilizes video aids to enhance learning.
