Welcome to the Parkinson's Toolkit, developed by the National Parkinson Foundation!

Parkinson's disease< is the second most common neurodegenerative disease.  The management of Parkinson's disease can be complicated, including challenges at diagnosis<, in choosing the right medications<, and in managing patients through hospitalization<.  However, in many circumstances, excellent care can be provided in a primary care or non-specialist setting, and the key is a properly structured encounter<, periodically reviewing evolving best practices and recognizing when to refer< your patient to a therapist or specialist.

 

Melanoma occurs more frequently in patients with PD. Learn more about how to manage melanoma in Parkinson’s disease.

Patients with PD can suffer serious complications. Learn more about hospital encounters involving patients with PD.
