This course has been written for healthcare professionals working in primary care, who prescribe or dispense medicines for patients with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). This publication seeks to provide a broad overview of the management of PD. Treatment of PD is under the care of a specialist. However, due to the complexity of the disease, primary care healthcare professionals will encounter many aspects of the disease. Attention is also drawn to non-motor symptoms. Three of the most common non-motor symptoms (depression, dementia and psychosis) present a major challenge for the management of PD and therefore are discussed in detail in designated sections.
