The world of Parkinson’s disease medications can be complex to navigate, but it doesn’t need to be a mystery!  In this webinar, Lisa Mann, RN, BSN, MA, will shed light the pitfalls and barriers to tapping in to the best possible management of symptoms. Learn critical information and practical strategies that you can use while working with your doctor to achieve your best possible benefit and quality of life.  This program will include information about timing, identifying intended therapeutic effect and side effects for common anti-Parkinson medications, and what you can do to be proactive in managing your medications and treatment plan.
