This education is accredited: RACGP 2 CPD, ACRRM 1 CME PD.
Parkinson's disease is the second most common neurological condition in Australia, and effective management requires a multidisciplinary team approach involving pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments. This module explores the latest evidence-based approach to the management of Parkinson's disease, dystonia and essential tremor, with a focus on the role of deep brain stimulation in the treatment of neurological symptoms and new advances in this therapy.On completion of this educational activity participants will be able to:
- Provide an overview of the therapeutic management of Parkinson’s disease (PD).
- Describe the place in therapy of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for PD and other movement disorders and the benefits it may offer patients.
- Outline the surgical procedures involved in DBS and the role of the GP in referral and follow-up.
- Recognise which patients are likely to be suitable and unsuitable candidates for DBS.
