An interprofessional practice approach to improving occupational participation, communication, and mobility in Parkinson’s disease

An interprofessional practice approach to rehabilitation for people with Parkinson disease (PD) should address impairments of communication, motor function, and activities of daily living. This seminar will present an example of a unified approach across speech, physical and occupational therapies (LSVT LOUD® and LSVT BIG®) to comprehensively treat these cross-system deficits in people with PD. Integration of patient specific goals and utilization of other healthcare and community based professionals will be explored.
