Affecting over 1 million people in the United States, Parkinson’s Disease
(PD) is usually diagnosed in patients over 50 years of age and renders the majority of
patients disabled 10 to 15 years after disease onset. The cardinal manifestations resulting
from disease progression ultimately leave patients entombed within their own bodies,
often necessitating complex treatment regimens, frequent hospitalization, and
oftentimes institutionalization. Because substantial neuronal damage has already occurred
by the time patients are accurately diagnosed, timely recognition of symptoms
and referral to a neurologist are critical. Early diagnosis is particularly important since
disease-modifying therapies provide greater benefit to patients with early versus
advanced-stage PD. Managed care and community pharmacists play an integral role in
managing patients with PD by simplifying complex drug regimens, providing valuable
information for both clinicians and patients throughout therapy, managing adverse
events and drug interactions, and recognizing therapy-related problems early on in treatment.
This live activity is designed to provide community and managed care pharmacists
with the most up-to-date information on identification and management strategies for
patients with PD to enhance patient care.
