The MDS-ES Multidisciplinary Teamwork in Parkinson’s Disease, Atypical PD and Dystonia: Innovations and Challenges course will address the challenge of how to treat speech, gait, balance and saliva problems as well as how to avoid swallowing complications in patients with Movement Disorders. Despite advances in pharmacological and surgical approaches, the challenge at the late stages of Movement Disorders is attenuated by the possible occurrence of cognitive problems as well as fatigue that can impede the application of otherwise successful treatments. This course will address unanswered questions in clinical practice and unmet clinical needs in movement disorders for physio/physical therapists, speech therapists, and occupational therapists.
