Masterclass: Parkinson’s Disease - The Spectrum of Psychiatric and Physical Health Problems

Parkinsonian syndromes provide an important overlap for old age psychiatry and geriatric medicine. Parkinson’s disease itself has a high prevalence of depression, dementia and psychosis; many psychiatric medications have extra-pyramidal side-effects; cerebrovascular disease may cause both dementia and Parkinsonism and also has a high prevalence of depression. Furthermore, there is a complex interaction between anti-parkinsonian medications and many drugs commonly prescribed in psychiatry. The protean manifestations of Parkinson’s disease necessitate a close liaison between the two specialties so that shared care may be of the highest possible standard.

This courses covers:

  • The differential diagnosis of Parkinsonian syndromes and tremor
  • The pathophysiology and aetiology of Parkinson’s disease
  • Tailoring treatment to the individual with Parkinson’s
  • Neuropsychiatric manifestations of Parkinson’s disease and their management
  • Carer needs
  • Palliative care and team working in Parkinson’s
  • NICE Parkinson’s guidelines
