Description

The “modern clinician” is a practical and caring clinician who

realizes that therapeutic advancements in Parkinson’s disease

are occurring at an unprecedented pace. Much of today’s

treatment approach is based on clinical trial findings. Therefore,

it is important for clinicians to not only be updated with the

clinical trial results, but also to know the hypotheses behind

them, the strengths, weaknesses and other findings outside

the primary objectives of these clinical trials. This educational

program is unique because it intends to discuss the current

approaches to the treatment of Parkinson’s disease in the

context of the “lessons learned” in clinical trials to date. The

program also intends to provide a sneak peak of the future in

PD treatment based on planned and on-going clinical trials for

delaying disease progression and improving motor and nonmotor

symptoms of the disorder.
