Recognizing the Challenge: Caring for People with Parkinson's while Hospitalized

This presentation discusses the challenges that people with Parkinson’s face when hospitalized, including, but not limited to, complicated medication regimens and increased hospital encounters.

In addition to a review of these challenges, we hear from a person with Parkinson’s disease (PD), as he shares his own challenging hospital experiences and advice for others living with PD in the hospital to help us better understand
the patient experience.
