MDS 2020 | Management of Parkinson’s disease with interdisciplinary teams, telemedicine and palliative care

Terry Ellis, PhD, PT, NCS, Boston University College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences, Sargent College, Boston, MA, discusses the management of Parkinson’s disease and the importance of an interdisciplinary team, telemedicine and palliative care. An interdisciplinary team is crucial to treat Parkinson’s disease effectively due to the complexity and diversity of symptoms. Telemedicine is beneficial for Parkinson’s patients to relieve the burden of travel and enable access to experts. Early palliative care is important to help support patients’ plan and regulate the expectations of their care. This interview was recorded during an online conference call with The Video Journal of Neurology (VJNeurology).
