The Parkinson's Tailored Management course module 2 comprises 6 virtual sessions addressing a broad range of non-motor symptoms in a thematic way. Intended to be completed following Module 1 on medicines management, it is aimed at relatively newly qualified Parkinson's Nurse Specialists and should be considered pre-course training.

The series has been developed by Louise Ebenezer, PDNS in South Wales, and Jane Price, PDNS and chair of the PDNS Association.

The complete non-motor module comprises:

  1. Neuropsychiatric part 1 (mood disorders)

  2. Neuropsychiatric part 2 (cognition)

  3. Autonomic part 1 (bladder, bowel, sexual dysfunction, and orthostatic hypotension)

  4. Autonomic part 2 (speech, swallowing, nausea and dysphagia)

  5. Sleep (including daytime sleepiness, sweating and restless legs)

  6. Sensory processing and pain

Each session includes:

  • A detailed teaching video by Jane and Louise

  • A complex case study, or several short case studies, highlighting both the non-motor symptoms being focussed on in the session, and their potential interrelationship with other non-motor symptoms.

  • A range of supportive literature including relevant journal articles, papers, assessment tools and patient-facing information, as appropriate.

  • A set of three multiple-choice questions based on that session's content to test your knowledge.
