Atypical Parkinsonism Podcast Series

There is a general lack of awareness of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration (CBD) and multiple system atrophy (MSA) among many healthcare professionals and the general public. A long road to an accurate clinical diagnosis and access to care creates extra confusion and burden for patients and families with one of these “atypical Parkinsonian syndromes,” especially as they navigate quickly progressing and complex symptoms.  

Created in partnership with CurePSP, this three-part Atypical Parkinsonism Podcast Series will cover: a high-level overview of distinctions between PSP, CBD and MSA and Parkinson’s disease; an interprofessional approach to symptom management; and common challenges and needs associated with atypical Parkinsonism. Learners will hear from specialists and a PSP care partner who share their perspectives on the care for these rare diseases.
