Parkinson’s Disease: A Multidisciplinary Guide to Management
Evidence shows that a multidisciplinary approach to Parkinson’s care provides better patient outcomes and is more cost effective. This new title provides a practical guide to this approach, with the perspective of the person living with Parkinson’s firmly at its core.
Written by experts in their field and firmly grounded in up-to-date evidence, Parkinson’s Disease: A Multidisciplinary Guide to Management addresses multidisciplinary intervention through the various stages of disease, rather than by discipline. It covers all aspects of care, from pharmacological management to non-drug interventions that are helpful for Parkinson’s symptoms.
