Podcast Episode 30: Team Care for PD: Why It’s Important

PD Library thumbnail

Parkinson’s disease is a complex condition, involving more than just movement. And to ensure the best outcomes and quality of life, people with PD should have a coordinated team of health professionals to help with their physical, social, and emotional needs. Since PD is a progressive disease, this array of health professionals can keep a constant eye on the changing condition and provide appropriate therapies as needs arise. Today, Lisa Mann, the nurse and education director for the Oregon Health and Science University Parkinson’s Center in Portland, a Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence, discusses who should be part of the core team and how other rehab therapists and health care professionals can be brought onto the team as needed.
