To be announced.
The MDS-PAS Comprehensive Care for Parkinson’s Disease two-day virtual course will provide attendees with practical tools to develop and improve their comprehensive care models in the American Continent, enhance leadership skills and establish an optimal communication network with other regional centers to strengthen networks of clinical care and continue education and research. The course will distinguish amongst MultiD, interdisciplinary and integrated care and how it can apply to academic centers, group practice and private practice, especially in underserved areas.
The small group breakout session on day one, “Building a Team”, will utilize the A3 problem solving method, which is a tool used to focus on desired states, identify gaps to reach those states and provide structure for the changes that need to be made. The goal is to end the session with tangible outcomes on how this method can work in the area of comprehensive care.
It is well understood that despite Parkinson’s disease being equated to a neurodegenerative disease, with defining motor features, it also causes an array of non-motor symptoms that require expertise outside of the Movement Disorders field. A more comprehensive approach to treatment can lead to better quality of life.
- This virtual course will offer didactic lectures, small group workshops, live Q&A sessions and panel discussions with the experts and networking opportunities.
- This is an application-based course directed to those residing in the Pan American Section of MDS: USA, Canada, México, Central/South America or the Caribbean.
- Movement disorders specialists, general neurologists and Comprehensive Care Team leaders interested in learning about comprehensive care models. A Comprehensive Care Team Leader is any clinic director be it a movement disorders specialist, neurologist, Physical Therapist, or other provider who oversees the operations of a Parkinson’s Disease clinic.
