This 10 session ECHO series will build the capacity of clinicians and their teams to diagnose and treat Parkinson Disease (PD) and address common issues that occur because of a Parkinson diagnosis. Topics may include: 

  • Differential diagnosis of PD and related movement disorders 
  • Treating motor and non-motor symptoms of PD
  • Cognitive effects of PD, including depression and anxiety
  • Navigating Psychosis 
  • Safety concerns and improving team-based care, including fall risks, safety at home, and driving
  • Hospitalization 
  • Advanced stage medication management and palliative care

We will select up to 40 clinicians, behavioral health specialists, pharmacists, nurses, or medical assistants who work in primary care, skilled nursing facilities, community-based mental health, and rehabilitation settings. Participants will be chosen to participate based on their interest in the program, ability to commit to attend the sessions, commitment to share the information they learn with others, and willingness to present at least one case. Prescribing clinicians (MD, DO, ND, NP, PA) from primary care practices are especially encouraged to register.
