Future Pharmacist: Parkinson's Disease

Welcome to the latest Future Pharmacist: PDS Clinic.

Future Pharmacist: PDS Clinic will cover a different area that will help you build on the knowledge that you have already gained from your undergraduate course.

In this clinic, we are focussing on Parkinson’s Disease. After downloading the PDF and reading through the material, take time to reflect on what you’ve learnt and write a PDS entry to earn a point.

Learning objectives

In this CPD clinic we will look at how we as pharmacy professionals can best support patients with Parkinson’s disease. To do this we will focus on:

  • effects of motor and non-motor Parkinson’s symptoms on patients.
  • treatment options available for people with Parkinson’s, potential side-effects and interactions with these medicines.
  • supporting people with Parkinson’s to get the best from their medicines.
  • signposting people living with Parkinson’s and their carers to useful sources of advice. 

We will mirror the Parkinson’s UK approach by referring to this condition as Parkinson’s.
