  • Overview

    Parkinson’s Disease Psychosis (PDP) is a chronic, severely debilitating, and progressive neurodegenerative illness. PDP was once believed to be primarily a motor dysfunction disease, but it is now known to be multifaceted, encompassing cognitive and neuropsychiatric complications. PDP, which may include visual phenomena, hallucinations, and delusions, has been reported in up to 60% of patients and causes a substantial burden to the patient and their care partners. Early identification and treatment intervention are critical to lessening the patient’s burden. The goal of this educational series is to convince clinicians that integrating routine screening for PDP for all patients with Parkinson’s earlier in their journey is the right thing to do, to uncover PDP symptoms sooner, and to select an approved treatment option for PDP to improve patient outcomes and quality of life.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team, including Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Primary Care Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, and Physician Assistants,as well as other clinicians involved in the management of patients with Parkinson’s Disease Psychosis (PDP).

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to: 

    • Learn to integrate routine screening of all patients with Parkinson’s disease to recognize the signs and symptoms of Parkinson's Disease Psychosis (PDP) earlier
    • Select an appropriate treatment option for the management of patients with PDP based upon the available evidence-based clinical safety and efficacy data, MDS guidelines, and expert consensus
    • Develop an individualized, evidence-based, patient-centric care plan for persons that improve the quality of life and outcome in people suffering from PDP
  • Accreditation and Credit Designation Statements

    In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and TotalCME, Inc. GLC is jointly accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

    This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 1.25 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.
