Parkinson’s Foundation Learning Institute in Collaboration with Emory University’s DREAMS Program

Parkinson’s Foundation and Emory University's DREAMS: Developing Research Education and Advocacy for Multicultural Seniors are collaborating on the 2018 Learning Institute.

Parkinson’s Foundation Research Advocates speed research by prioritizing research, improving studies and influencing stakeholders. Originally supported by a Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute grant, Emory University’s DREAMS program has prepared 24 diverse seniors to influence, participate, and collaborate in all phases of the research process. By bringing these programs together in a nationwide initiative, this collaboration will ensure diverse perspectives are heard.

Nursing Solutions: Improving Caregiver Strain through Science and Model Interventions

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a chronic, progressive neurologic disorder, with a disease trajectory of decades in many cases.  Research over the last 15-20 years, shows that the gradual loss of patient autonomy has a negative impact on the life of the caregiver resulting in decreased mental and physical health and decline in quality of life.   Utilizing existing research, this online seminar will provide a framework for assessing caregiver strain and identifying potential interventions.  One model intervention will be described, i.e. the use of PHOTOVOICE to assist caregivers in talking about difficult issues they face.
