Course Description:  

The Allied Health Team Training for Parkinson’s Disease (ATTP) is a 3.5 day (Wed.-Sat.) on site course designed by the Parkinson's Foundation to increase knowledge about Parkinson’s disease and build capacity for comprehensive interprofessional 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:

(Overall learning objectives apply to all professions in the target audience.)

Recommended Audience: 

The course is intended for neurologists, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, social workers and music therapists who are interested in education about management of medications and care challenges in Parkinson’s disease. State of the art care can make the difference between satisfaction and despair for people with Parkinson’s (PwP), caregivers and the staff providing the care. The faculty consists of an interdisciplinary faculty of Parkinson's Foundation senior movement disorder specialists.

     Plan to arrive on the Tuesday evening of March 26th to begin at 8:00 am on Wednesday, March 27th.

This will allow time to get to the airport after the training end time. The sessions in the last day are vital in learning how to collectively create a plan to bring the program learning back to your specific workplace. Early departure will also affect continuing education hours and certification of completion from the Parkinson's Foundation.
