Considered “atypical Parkinsonian syndromes,” over half of people with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration (CBD) and multiple system atrophy (MSA) are initially misdiagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) due to similarities in early symptoms as well as lack of awareness of these rare, neurodegenerative diseases among many healthcare professionals and the general public.
This is the third of three podcast episodes within our atypical parkinsonism podcast series, organized in partnership with CurePSP and designed to address the unique care needs across the disease stages of PSP, CBD and MSA.
Jessica Shurer, Director of Clinical Affairs and Advocacy at CurePSP, and Nancy Montgomery, who cared for her husband who was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy, cover common challenges experienced by people living with PSP, CBD or MSA and describe helpful resources and roles played by healthcare teams that support the quality of life of patients and family care partners.
Jessica Shurer, Nancy Montgomery, and podcast host, Dan Keller, have disclosed that they have no relevant financial disclosures.
