Fatigue and apathy are common non-motor symptoms in Parkinson’s Disease (PD). These distressing symptoms affect one’s quality of life and increase caregivers’ burden. This web seminar will discuss such symptoms and their presentation, highlight recent research findings and studies and prompt discussion on how we can help patients with these problems. 

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Recognize the frequency and significance of fatigue and apathy in PD;
  • Discuss the impact of these common non-motor symptoms on patients and caregivers;
  • Review recent research in these common problems; and,
  • Discuss how nurses can recognize and intervene with patients suffering fatigue and apathy.

Presenters:

Amy Bruno, Ph.D., R.N., A.N.P-B.C., has devoted her recent research to the study of fatigue in Parkinson’s disease, and in 2017 presented her work at the New England Gerontological Advanced Practice Nurse Association and the Eastern Research Society Symposium. She is a 2015 alumni of the Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson's Foundation.

 

 

Nabila Dahodwala, M.D., practices in the Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
