Message from the editor

Welcome to the latest edition of E Parkinson Post!

We all know how important it is to maintain good relationships with our health care professionals, such as family physicians, specialists and physiotherapists. Whether it’s asking the right questions and getting reassuring answers or knowing how to get an appointment in a timely manner, it helps to know how to navigate the health care system.

This issue is devoted to improving communication with health care professionals. We asked both people with Parkinson’s and health care professionals for their best advice. Larry Peabody, a person with Parkinson’s and someone who has worked in health care, shares his perspective. You’ll also find tips from a neurologist, clinical nurse specialist and physiotherapist, all of whom have lots of experience with Parkinson’s disease.

We’ve also provided articles on other areas of interest and profile Dr. Ami Gupta, a young physician-scientist. Please visit us at www.parkinson.ca for more information.

Comments, questions, and story ideas are always welcome. You can send them to editor@parkinson.ca.

We hope you enjoy.
