Parkinson’s Disease, Pain Management and Essential Tremor
This is a recurring webinar series from Precision Health. Details will be updated weekly. GPs need only to register once for access to all meetings.

Precision Health invites GPs and Allied Health Professionals to attend this presentation by Professor Richard Bittar, Dr Mina Ghaly and Dr Richard Sullivan.

Activity ID 292857

This activity aims to update GPs on the surgical and non-surgical options available to patients with Parkinson’s Disease and Essential Tremor. It will also seek to clarify patient selection criteria that can be applied in the context of primary care, such that Deep Brain Stimulation and MRI-guided focused ultrasound treatment is considered and offered as realistic treatment options for patients with severe tremor. Medications are the mainstay of Parkinson’s disease management. When should they be started, which meds should be used, and what does the treating practitioner need to watch out for? These questions will be discussed.
