The primary purpose of this program is to provide information on continuing education for physicians who care for Parkinson’s disease (PD) and movement disorders patients. Both standard approaches and new advances are highlighted.
Upon completion of this activity, learners will be able to:
1. Assess the levodopa response in candidates for deep brain stimulation in Parkinson’s disease
2. Use the best "ON“-state as an individual outcome predictor for DBS in Parkinson’s disease
3. Assess the multidimensional symptomatic and functional aspects of candidacy for deep brain stimulation in Parkinson’s disease
4. Advice patients about their individual risk-benefit profile for deep brain stimulation in Parkinson’s disease
This activity is intended for neurologists, primary care physicians with an interest in movement disorders, neurology residents and movement disorder fellows.
Contained within the module is a pre-test, an article with supplementary case videos, a post-test, and an evaluation. Once you have complete the module and completed the evaluation, you will receive your CME certificate.
