PD Library thumbnail

Moderated by: Gwyn M. Vernon, M.S.N., R.N., C.R.N.P., Co-Founder and National Director of The Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson's Foundation

Led by: Jennifer Bailey DeJong, Ph.D., R.N., F.N.P.-B.C., C.N.E., Associate Professor, Concordia College (Scholar, 2014) and Ruth Hagestuen, M.A., R.N., Director, Allied Team Training for Parkinson'sTM, a program of the Parkinson's Foundation program.

Given the Parkinson's complex and progressive nature of Parkinson's, it is well-recognized most people living with the disease will need care from a multidisciplinary healthcare team. For healthcare professionals working in Parkinson's, gaining interdisciplinary skills is critical and should begin early in pre-professional training.  This program investigates educational models used in undergraduate education and in continuing professional education to improve team collaborative care for people living with Parkinson's.

Learning Objectives:

  • Distinguish between cross-disciplinary, multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary education.
  • Develop an understanding of the relevance and connections of multiple disciplines to the complex care of the Parkinson's patient.
  • Contemplate how interdisciplinary education can foster improved care of people with Parkinson's disease at the student and professional level.
