How do you define success in treatment of a progressive condition? Neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Huntington’s disease present individuals with new, often worsening, impairments as the conditions progress. While it may come off as a daunting task, rehabilitation professionals play a crucial role in addressing the ‘now’ and preparing for the ‘what if.’ Specific motor impairments, such as freezing of gait in Parkinson’s disease or spasticity in multiple sclerosis, provide unique challenges to mobility and daily activities. Not only are there physical signs we must address in therapy services, but also the non-motor impairments. Oftentimes decreased attention, difficulty multitasking, and behavioral barriers limit our ability to maintain or improve a patient’s functional status. This course aims to improve clinician skills from diagnosis through late-stage disease management. Literature review, video case studies, and group discussions will be useful in building your skills. Improved understanding of diagnoses, pathologies, and medical management is necessary when considering the clinical decision-making process. This information leads us to define appropriate goals, apply evidence-based interventions, and care for all of the complexities that come along with an uphill battle against neurodegeneration. Course Objectives: At the end of the course, attendees will be able to: • Summarize fundamentals of pathology associated with PD, secondary parkinsonisms, typicalparkinonisms, MS, ALS, and HD • Identify clinical signs and symptoms of PD and parkinsonisms, MS, ALS, and HD ○ Describe motor and non-motor signs of PD and parkinsonisms ○ Summarize various cognitive impairments and their impact on functional mobility • Summarize the mechanism of action, clinical candidacy, and common side effects of disease-specific medications of PD, MS, ALS, and HD • Identify appropriate outcome measures related to disease-specific impairments of PD, MS, ALS, and HD • Apply research-based interventions for PD, MS, ALS, and HD • Describe long-term management of patients with PD, MS, ALS, and HD through all therapy services and community-based programs
