Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a type of movement disorder. It happens when nerve cells in the brain do not produce enough of a brain chemical called dopamine. Sometimes it is genetic, but most cases do not seem to run in families. Exposure to chemicals in the environment might play a role. Care providers caring for someone with PD can run into some challenges, especially as the disease progresses. This course will assist care providers in navigating care via an in-depth understanding of the disease.
- Learn medical and non-medical interventions to aid in the empathic care for individuals with PD.
- Understand the importance of non-invasive, empathic communication.
- Learn engaging activities for individuals with PD.
- Regulations that apply to PD care.
