Fast Facts: Parkinson's Disease provides doctors, nurses and therapists with rapid access to the most up-to-date relevant information, with the aim of providing optimum care and improving the lives of all patients with Parkinson's disease and related disorders.

Most textbooks on Parkinson’s disease focus on specific elements of management such as the treatment of motor symptoms, yet there is an overwhelming body of evidence and patient testimony that supports the need for information on holistic care. This beautifully illustrated third edition of Fast Facts: Parkinson’s Disease addresses all aspects of patient care, including the importance of a multidisciplinary team approach, and the assessment and treatment of non-motor symptoms.

This highly readable handbook covers:
* The latest genetic discoveries
* New diagnostic techniques, including transcranial ultrasound
* Long-term complications and their management
* Neurosurgical treatments and candidate assessment
* New clinical trial data on neuroprotective therapies
The most recent additions to the pharmacological armamentarium.
