Research Round Up: NPF Study Sheds New Light on Parkinson’s and Dyskinesia, Antipsychotic Medication, Injury and Fall Rates

Research Round Up - November 2016

Who has the highest risk of injury among people with Parkinson’s disease (PD)? Is there a connection between medication combinations and falling less? Are prescription antipsychotics safe? Earlier this year, NPF presented four posters at the World Parkinson Congress (WPC) that answered these questions and more.   

For seven years NPF’s Parkinson’s Outcomes Project has continuously collected real-time data from more than 8,000 patients with Parkinson’s who receive expert care at an NPF Center of Excellence. This study provides us with robust data, allowing us to constantly publish results and use them to educate PD specialists with new PD information that can help them provide better treatment.

This graphic highlights each of the four posters, which are the most recent Parkinson’s Outcomes Project findings:
