Optimizing Hospital Care for People with Parkinson's

This course highlights key recommendations and strategies to promote optimal care and health outcomes for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) during planned and unplanned hospital stays. This can include an inpatient, outpatient and emergency department hospital encounters.

Data from the Parkinson Foundation’s Outcomes Project shows that people with PD are not only at increased risk for hospitalization, they are also more likely to have avoidable complications, worsening PD symptoms, longer stays and poorer health outcomes. The first step to reverse these increased risks is to understand the unique needs of each person with Parkinson's.
