The Parkinson’s Foundation has recently launched this new course for nurses who are delivering care across the Parkinson’s disease (PD) spectrum. Designed by Parkinson’s nurse specialists to help other nurses better understand how to deliver comprehensive care to people living with PD, this new course is designed especially for nurses, who are often one of the first points of contact for people living with PD.
The prevalence of PD is expected to increase in the coming years, with a large impact on the healthcare industry. Unfortunately, there is currently little information the disease specifically designed for nurses. To address this need, the Parkinson’s Foundation has designed this course to focus on long-term care and acute care nurses, recent nursing graduates and nursing students who have limited knowledge of the disease and aims to ensure better care for people living with PD.
This course is available for CEUs for a nominal fee or can be viewed for free without any CEUs.
This nursing continuing professional development activity was approved by the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses for 9 contact hours, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
