Neuropsychiatric problems in Parkinsons disease.jpg

The most frequent psychiatric problem in Parkinson’s disease is depression, but did you know that most of the psychiatric and cognitive disturbances associated with Parkinson's disease are potentially treatable?

The aim of this module is to describe the most common psychiatric symptoms and conditions occurring in Parkinson’s disease, and to provide information on evidence-based treatment strategies for these problems in this very distressing and debilitating condition.

The information provided is intended for general adult and old age psychiatrists, but will also be of interest to neuropsychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, and other professionals working with patients with Parkinson’s disease.
