Ask the Expert Webinar: Hospitalization and Parkinson's
People with Parkinson's have unique needs and considerations while in the hospital, and it is not uncommon for healthcare professionals to be unfamiliar with these needs. It is important for people with Parkinson's to be prepared for both planned and unplanned hospital visits, and to know how to self-advocate for their care.
On November 19, Debra Mayer will join Parkinson Society BC for the first time to discuss hospitalization and Parkinson's, share tips for how to best self-advocate in the hospital setting, and how you can make the most out of your Aware in Care kit. Debra is a member of the Aware in Care advisory committee at the Parkinson's Foundation, and is a registered nurse specializing in critical care and emergency nursing. Her areas of practice include chronic and acute care nursing, clinical experiences, and simulation. She also teaches nursing full-time.
We welcome all individuals with Parkinson's to this webinar as well as their spouses and/or carepartners/caregivers, as they may benefit from learning more about the disease to assist in supporting their loved one.
Register today to reserve a spot for yourself, your household or group! If you will be watching the webinar on the same computer or screen as another person or group, only one registration is required.
