Course Description

The Allied Health Team Training for Parkinson’s Disease is a three-day course designed by the National Parkinson Foundation to increase knowledge about 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.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, you should be able to accomplish the following:

Recommended Audience

The course is intended for neurologists, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, music therapists, and social workers, the majority of whom already have some experience with the management of Parkinson’s disease and are interested in further education and collaboration. An interdisciplinary faculty of senior movement disorder specialists will teach the course.

Travel Recommendations (air and hotel)

Arrival airport - Miami International (MIA
The training site is next to the Miami airport and provides a free airport shuttle.
If you use the Ft. Lauderdale airport (FLL), cab fare will be $50 or more each way.

Plan to arrive on the evening of May 16th. The training begins at 8:00 am the next morning.

Plan to depart on May 20th AFTER 3:00 pm. This will allow time to get to the airport after the training end time. The sessions on the last day are vital in learning how to collectively plan on bringing all of the program learning back to your specific workplace. Early departure will also affect continuing education hours and certification of completion from NPF.

A hotel link to a preferred room block rate of $129.00 per night (plus tax) will be provided in your letter of attendance approval. This rate is for a limited time only, so we recommend for you to make your hotel reservations as soon as your approval letter is received.
