Giving Neuroscience Nurses the Tools for Success

Educating people with Parkinson’s and related healthcare specialists is one of Parkinson Society Canada’s (PSC) top priorities. That’s why PSC is proud to announce our first professional education workshop geared to neuroscience nurses at the 45th annual Canadian Association of Neuroscience Nurses (CANN) Conference in Banff, Alberta on June 3rd, 2014.

The two hour workshop will be delivered by expert presenter Lucie Lachance, a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Movement Disorders at the Montreal Neurological Hospital at the McGill University Health Centre.  The workshop will help nurses apply the Canadian Guidelines on Parkinson’s Disease (CGPD) to their clinical practice in the management of their Parkinson’s patients.

Topics range from early onset Parkinson’s to the more advanced stages of the disease, outlining how to best treat and manage Parkinson’s patients based on the recommendations laid out in the CGPD. The workshop will utilize realistic scenarios that neuroscience nurses might encounter in everyday practice, teaching them how to work through clinical features of the disease as well as identifying interventions that would help maintain a higher quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s.

The Canadian Association of Neuroscience Nurses sets standards of practice and promotes continuing professional education and research. Members collaborate with individuals, families, interdisciplinary teams and communities to prevent illness and to improve health outcomes for people with or at risk for neurological disorders including Parkinson’s disease.
