UF nurse practitioner participates in roundtable on quality of life in advanced Parkinson’s disease

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
  • Identify and assess caregiver strain
  • Discuss advanced care planning with patients and caregivers
