Monday, November 08, 2021

7:00PM – 8:00PM ET

Please note this TeleECHO program is 7:00PM Eastern, 6:00PM Central, 5:00PM Mountain and 4:00PM Pacific.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This live TeleECHO program implemented through a virtual platform will explore the management of Parkinson’s disease psychosis (PDP), which is a condition that affects a substantial proportion of patients with late-stage Parkinson’s disease. Through this program, clinicians will learn to recognize the symptoms and characteristic features associated with PDP, as well as the pathophysiologic basis of PDP, and treatments that target some of the underlying pathways involved in disease progression. In addition to the didactic portion of this presentation, interactive case studies presented by expert faculty will evaluate pharmacologic approaches to PDP management, including the efficacy and safety of approved therapeutic options. Engaging whiteboard animation will review the pathophysiology of PDP and the mechanism of pharmacologic interventions. Through this program, clinicians will gain the tools and knowledge they need to optimally manage patients with PDP.
