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 consistently practiced leading to variability in care for this patient population. The understanding and treatment of Parkinson’s disease is ever expanding affording our patients more opportunities and options for a better quality of life. SFNS will hold its FOURTH biennial Parkinson's disease Symposium in October 2020. 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 the Prodrome of PD, Thinking outside Dopamine, Targeting Alpha-Synuclein, Sleep in PD, TeleHealth and the Physiology of Tremors.

Educational Objectives

1. Identify the scope of telehealth in the care delivery of Parkinson’s disease to improve access to care.

2. Recognize the role of non-dopaminergic medical therapies in Parkinson's disease which can expand the scope of care for this population.

3. Identify and distinguish symptoms of various tremor disorders.

4. Describe associated symptoms that can result from Parkinson’s disease, including sleep issues and prodromal symptoms allowing for possible early detection.
