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

  • 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
