Dr. Jonathan Squires on Medication Management in PD

HeadWay, aka the Victoria Epilepsy & Parkinson’s Centre, recently sponsored a talk by Dr. Jonathan Squires on medication management in PD. A copy of his slides are available as a PDF at the following link:

The Art of Medication Management in Parkinson’s including Minimizing the Risk of Motor Fluctuations

There are a total of 63 slides in the presentation so I have created a short table of contents to help you find a section more quickly:

Victoria PSBC Regional Conference Videos Available

The videos of the four presentations given at the November 5, 2016 Regional Conference in Victoria are now online at the Parkinson Society BC website at the following location:

http://www.parkinson.bc.ca/resources-services/resources/#videos

There are a lot of links from other conferences on this page so I’ve pulled out the relevant ones and put them below in presentation order with duration times and links that open in a new tab or window.

 

They are worth listening to. One of my favourite quotes comes from Laurie Mischley’s talk:

We’re really good at hiding your symptoms while your disease progresses, but we are really bad at changing the rate of disease progression … we are celebrating the 200th year anniversary next year and we don’t have a single therapy other than exercise that has been shown to slow disease progression.
