Millions of adults with chronic illnesses are currently experiencing disruption of access to the quality of care they might normally receive. For patients with degenerative neurologic conditions such as Parkinson’s disease or dementias, new-onset psychosis has a high likelihood of being undetected or undertreated during this time. These same patients are also at high risk of complications of COVID-19, and protecting them in their place of residence is a desirable goal. Telemedicine has quickly emerged as a solution to adapt to practice. Although telemedicine has been a developing area for some time, COVID-19 has rapidly thrust practices and patients into its application. In this 2-part webcast, psychosis in the context of neurodegenerative disease and environmental stressors will be discussed, along with current best practices and clinical pearls in the application of telemedicine to meet the needs of vulnerable patients. The desired results of this educational activity are to provide expert guidance on the use of telemedicine to clinicians caring for older adults with symptoms of psychosis during the COVID-19 outbreak and beyond.

Educational Objectives
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
• Describe the relationships among comorbid medical, psychosocial, and environmental stressors, neurodegenerative disease, and symptoms of psychosis
• Discuss the rationale for incorporating telemedicine into care for older adults with neurodegenerative disease
• Develop strategies to assess and manage symptoms of psychosis via telemedicine using current best practices
