Symposium: Motor and Non-Motor Symptoms Management in Parkinson’s Disease

Saturday, 15.10.2022 09:00-17:00

Advanced PD is currently largely defined on the basis of consensus opinion and thus with several caveats. Largely focused on motor symptoms in the past, awareness of non-motor aspects of PD is increasing and reflects the therapeutic challenges of the disorder.

Device-aided therapies with intermittent bolus injections, subcutaneous or duodenal conti­nuous pump infusions or stereotactic surgery may be considered.

A holistic, multidisciplinary management of Parkinson’s disease should be aimed for but re­mains often still an unmet need. During the pandemic of COVID-19 the therapeutic challenges became even more significant. Specific healthcare professionals with a Movement Disorders Neurologist and the PD Nurse Specialist, are considered essential members of a multidiscip­linary team to gurantee optimal patient follow-up.

Together with international experts, we will approach current concepts and strategies in ad­vanced PD, based on device-aided therapies.

The lectures will provide the theoretical education and practical experience in the manage­ment of device aided treatments for advanced Parkinson’s disease.

Target audience: Clinicians, post-doctoral fellows, medical residents, medical students, and health care, professionals with an interest in device-aided therapies for advanced Parkinson‘s disease.

The symposium „Motor and Non-Motor Symptoms Management in Parkinson’s Disease“, Vi­enna, Austria, will be submitted for CME at the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®).

This scientific symposium will also be submitted for accreditation of DFP education points in Austria and Germany.

We hope this Scientific Symposium will provide valuable information for the treatment of your patients!
