The Parkinson's Disease Nurse Specialist.

The PD nurse is available to give advice and support to people with Parkinson's and their families. The PD nurse can make referrals to other health care professionals who can help.

The PD nurse can provide information and education about Parkinson's medication. This will help you get the most out of your medication.

PD drug treatments may be different in different people. The treatment that your doctor advises may change with time. Treatment schedules may be complicated so don't be afraid to ask. Good clear information reduces anxiety.

Leaflets and fact-sheets on topics related to PD are available from the PD nurse and the Parkinson's Disease Society.
