Do you have trouble falling asleep? Sleep problems are common in Parkinson’s disease (PD), but the good news is there are strategies people with PD can use to cope with its effects. Learn more by joining a one-hour PDF online seminar.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Recognize most common sleep problems associated with PD;
  • Understand approaches for diagnosing sleep disorders in PD; and,
  • Discuss available treatments for poor sleep and daytime sleepiness in PD.

His study was published in 2014 and is summarized here.
