Movement Disorder Clinic
Toronto’s Baycrest Hospital
Non-Motor Fluctuations of Parkinson’s Disease
(in English only)

Tuesday, May 28th, 2019 — 12:00pm Eastern

A non-motor fluctuation in Parkinson’s disease refers to the non-movement related symptoms that may fluctuate depending on medication timing. When medication wears off it may result in return of tremor, slowness in movement, and difficulty walking and moving. These are called motor fluctuations.

What many people are not aware of is that similar to motor fluctuations, non- motor symptoms of Parkinson’s may also return when medication wears off.

This webinar will discuss what non-motor fluctuations are and how to identify them. We will discuss the prevalence of non-motor fluctuations and their impact on quality of life for the person living with them. Finally we will review effective treatment strategies and current research initiatives in this area.
