About Team Training:

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is complex with multiple motor and non-motor symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment can improve the lives of those living with PD. Because of the extensive symptoms people with Parkinson’s may experience over the course of the disease, and due to the lack of proper training around Parkinson’s disease in academic settings, it often takes a long time for people to get a proper diagnosis of Parkinson’s. For those who do get the diagnosis, many have symptoms that go under-recognized or under-treated for lengths of time. Because knowledge and skills vary between health professionals, collaboration gives critical insight into the diagnosis and successful treatment of the disease.

At the Parkinson’s Foundation, we firmly believe that taking a collaborative team approach in the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease will change the way care is delivered. Team Training and team collaboration are not taught in most medical schools so must be learned outside of school. It is this belief that fuels our mission to provide our dynamic and engaging Team Training. Parkinson’s Foundation’s Team Training is designed to increase knowledge and build capacity for comprehensive, inter-professional care in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease throughout the continuum of the disease.
