Comprehensive Nursing Care for Parkinson's Disease covers what is presently known about the disease and current evidence-based standards of care, including management through deep brain stimulation, palliative care for frail older adults with Parkinson's, medication management, nonmotor complications and psychosocial issues, and complementary and alternative approaches.

The incidence of Parkinson's is growing as the number of older adults making up the general population increases. The demand for nurses who specialize in the care of patients with movement disorders is also increasing and it is crucial that they have a comprehensive manual for patient care.

Lisette Bunting-Perry and Gwyn Vernon have years of experience working with Parkinson's patients and have put together a team of internationally renowned clinicians who provide a truly comprehensive review of the information you need for the care of patients with this complex clinical profile.

This is an indispensable bedside companion in caring for those with Parkinson's as well as a much needed catalyst for the evaluation of future patient needs and the further development of comprehensive models of care.
