This one-hour module seeks to improve management of patients with Parkinson’s disease in primary care, focussing on identifying whether motor and non-motor symptoms are well controlled, taking appropriate steps to manage symptoms, and recognising the importance of specialist referral.

By completing this learning activity, participants will be able to:

  • Identify motor and non-motor symptoms commonly experienced by patients with Parkinson’s disease.
  • Describe non-pharmacological and pharmacological strategies to manage patients’ motor and non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
  • Explain gastrointestinal dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease and the management options to alleviate it.
  • Recognise that regular review of motor and non-motor symptoms, including specialist referral (where appropriate), is important to maintain quality of life and safety.

This activity is sponsored by UCB.
