Webinar Series

Are you a nurse or health professional working in Parkinson’s?

Learn about the latest innovations in PD care through our Nurse Webinar Series, designed for and by Scholars of The Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson's Foundation. Scholars of this program represent an innovative network of nurse educators who are working with the Foundation to advance research, care and nursing education. The series supports their ongoing education and collaboration. Other professionals who share these goals are invited to join the series.

Participants may view webinars live or view recordings afterwards. Through the Parkinson's Foundation's sponsorship of the American Society on Aging, continuing education units (CEUs) are available to nurses who participate live or within 30 days of each webinar.

Coming Up:

Nursing Solutions: Interdisciplinary Education on Parkinson's Disease 

Tuesday, October 17, 1:00 PM ET - 2:00 PM ET

Moderated by: Gwyn M. Vernon, M.S.N., R.N., C.R.N.P., Co-Founder and National Director of The Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson’s Foundation

Led by: Jennifer Bailey DeJong, Ph.D., R.N., F.N.P.-B.C., C.N.E., Associate Professor, Concordia College (Scholar, 2014) and Ruth Hagestuen, M.A., R.N., Director, Allied Team Training for ParkinsonTM, a program of the Parkinson’s Foundation

Given the complex and progressive nature of Parkinson’s, it is well-recognized most people living with the disease will need care from a multidisciplinary healthcare team. For healthcare professionals working in Parkinson’s, gaining interdisciplinary skills is critical and should begin early in pre-professional training.  This program will investigate educational models used in undergraduate education and in continuing professional education to improve team collaborative care for people living with Parkinson’s.

Learning Objectives:

  • Distinguish between cross-disciplinary, multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary education.
  • Develop an understanding of the relevance and connections of multiple disciplines to the complex care of the Parkinson’s patient.
  • Contemplate how interdisciplinary education can foster improved care of people with Parkinson’s disease at the student and professional level.
