Parkinson's disease is a progressive neuro-degenerative disorder that affects up to 1 million Americans. It is the second most common neuro-degenerative disorder after Alzheimer's disease. Currently effective symptomatic treatment options exist but are not deployed consistently leading to variability in care for this patient population. SFNS will hold its second biennial Parkinson's disease Symposium on September 17, 2016. Our last PD symposium was highly successful, attracting clinicians of all fields who participate in the care of patients with Parkinson's disease. Topics presented will include Neuroimaging in PD, Neuromuscular issues in PD, PD psychosis, Palliation in PD, Exercise and Surgical Limitations of DBS. We will end the program with panel discussion involving our faculty reviewing case presentations.

Educational Objectives

1. To Identify the limitations of current surgical treatments for Parkinsonism in order to improve appropriate patient referrals.

2. To illustrate the necessity of palliation for Parkinson's Disease as a part of the scope of care for this population.

3. To integrate exercise as an important component for the total care or Parkinsonian patients in order to reduce motor symptoms and delayfunctional progression.

4. To identify associated symptoms that occur with Parkinson's Disease, such as muscular issues and psychosis, for appropriate treatment.
