Designed by the Parkinson's Foundation and the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS), the Allied Team Training for Parkinson's™ (ATTP) comes to Vancouver, BC April 4 - 6, 2018. This three day on-site course was developed to increase the knowledge of Parkinson's disease and build capacity for comprehensive inter-professional care in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. Prior to the course, each registrant will complete three online preparatory modules, which include an overview of Parkinson's disease, interdisciplinary care teams and neuropsychiatric symptoms and management.
This course is intended for healthcare professionals such as doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, occupational therapists, physician assistants, physical therapists, speech language pathologists and social workers who are interested in education about management of medication and care challenges in Parkinson's disease (PD). It is believed that further education can make the difference between satisfaction and despair for patients, caregivers and staff providing the care.
