Leadership

ATTP® is not simply a course in Parkinson's disease. The ATTP is an intensive integrated curriculum, developed jointly by the faculty team and taught in a collaborative way. Faculty are committed to its mission of person-centered interprofessional care in Parkinson's disease and actually serve as a faculty team modeling effective integrated care planning in the training itself. Whether addressing cognition, mobility, communication or emotional issues, ATTP faculty values the contribution of each discipline to assessment and care of the person with Parkinson's disease and their caregiver.
