Pam Zeilman, ARNP, our DBS Clinical and Study Coordinator, participated in a round table discussion on “Improving Quality of Life in Advanced Parkinson’s Disease” in December 2011. The results of that discussion have been posted as a document intended to help nurse practitioners and physician assistants who treat patients with PD.
The group discusses how to
- Detect and manage non-motor symptoms of PD
