This book serves as a practical compendium on the management issues related to Parkinson's disease (PD).

As a quick, user-friendly reference, the book covers all aspects of effectively managing Parkinson's disease (PD), with discussions of symptoms, causes of PD, patient evaluation, and home care advice.

Conveniently organized in bullet-point, encyclopedic format, Parkinson's Disease is the comprehensive, one-stop reference for health professionals treating patients with PD.

Four key sections:
* Problems presents guidelines on addressing complications that occur during the disease process, including anxiety, hallucinations, depression, vision problems, and more
* Evaluation discusses the numerous patient evaluations required throughout the duration of the illness, such as genetic testing, brain imaging, speech and swallowing evaluation, and more
* Treatment presents both pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment approaches for patients with PD
* Appendices include supplemental reading, medication tools and assessment scales, rating scales, and additional notes

Nurses, primary care doctors, and associated health care professionals--from rehabilitation specialists to social workers--will find Parkinson's Disease the one reference they cannot do without.
