  • : Online

110,000 Australians are currently living with Parkinson’s disease, making it the most common major movement disorder, and the second-most prevalent neurodegenerative condition after dementia. Given that 1 in 340 people in Australia have Parkinson’s, it’s important to stay up to date in the management of these patients. This session will discuss treatment options to improve functional outcomes, specifically looking at the latest technology in deep brain stimulation.
