Cover image for lecture: Ageing, Parkinson’s Disease and Medicines

Lecture Overview

Parkinson's disease is second only to Alzheimer's in Australia as the most common age-related neurodegenerative disease, making it prevalent, as well as debilitating. Although we've come a long way from the 1817 description of the "shaking palsy", there is still no cure for Parkinson's disease. However, symptoms can be managed with pharmacological treatments. Join pharmacist Louis Roller as he explores these options.

Interesting but speaker needed to elaborating rate further regarding physiological aspects of Parkinson’s. Nurses do not always work with such detailed information so a quick reminder is helpful.
