Allied Team Training for Parkinson's (ATTP™)
Miami Course May 17-20, 2017
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.
At the conclusion of this activity, you should be able to accomplish the following:
- Design, review and modify a patient/family specific treatment plan
- Participate effectively as an interdisciplinary or interprofessional team member
- Identify challenges associated with Parkinson’s disease and side effects of the medication
- Support a person with Parkinson’s disease and their care partners in self-management
- List key characteristics of early, middle and late stage Parkinson’s disease
- Describe the unique and complementary role of each discipline in your care team
- Identify strategies for building inter professional networks and community partnerships
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.
