Hallucinations and Delusions Associated with Parkinson’s Disease Psychosis
Deborah Wasano, RN
Our webinar is designed for Administrators, Director of Nursing, and nursing staff that provide care to elderly and developmentally disabled persons. Our desire is to provide networking among leaders in the Post-Acute Care, Long Term Care, and Assisted Living industry while providing education on hot button issues. We hope that participants leave with the knowledge and tools to prepare them for the future.
This presentation provides education on tools to improve the quality of care. This program will review screening and care planning for Parkinson’s patients with hallucinations and delusions.
Learning Objectives Include
- Recognize the motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
