Parkinson's disease is a condition in which part of the brain becomes progressively more damaged over many years (a progressive neurological condition). Symptoms caused by the deficiency of a chemical in the brain called Dopamine; why it happens, nobody knows.

 

Not fatal but progressive and incurable and, with time, severely affects quality of life. It was first highlighted as a condition by the English doctor James Parkinson in 1817. He had 6 patients with involuntary shaking of arms and legs and body. The condition was originally called shaking palsy. 

 

During the session, you’ll cover:

Define what Parkinson's is

List the symptoms associated

Understand the diagnosis of Parkinson's

Know the basic principles behind Parkinson's medications

Understand the outlook for Parkinson's patients

Know how to adapt the care plan appropriately. 

 

This training is available as a half or full day course and comprises of an engaging mix of activities with fellow learners (maximum fifteen delegates).
