If interested in taking this workshop as a webinar, please register before March 22.

This workshop provides information about the latest clinical research on differential diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of individuals with Parkinson disease (PD).

The main emphasis of the workshop is on movement problems associated with PD, with discussion of specific intervention ideas and case examples.

Objectives:
• Summarize major research findings concerning pathophysiology, impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions in individuals with PD
• Discuss medical management of individuals with PD, including differential diagnosis, medications, and surgery
• Describe and/or demonstrate use of tests and measures appropriate for the evaluation of individuals with PD
• Discuss interventions for individuals with PD, including application of motor learning principles and specific suggestions for various stages of disease progression
• Given a case example, participate in group problem solving to select assessment tools and design an appropriate intervention program
