Poe Wellness Solutions attended the regional PD Talk Forum in January 2018. It is an honor to now participate in the National Forum. Below is a bit of background information about PD TALK. Learn more by visiting the Parkinson’s Foundation website.
In Parkinson’s disease (PD), there is evidence of differences in women’s symptoms, medication side effects, and access to care. Women and Parkinson’s Disease: Teams to Advance Learning and Knowledge (Women and PD TALK) is creating a nationally coordinated and supported team-based infrastructure to identify, implement and disseminate patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) of importance to women with Parkinson’s. Funded through an award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), Women and PD TALK will utilize these insights to create a research agenda and action plan to ensure better outcomes and improve the standard of care for women with Parkinson’s. Ten regional forums have taken place around the country to collect and understand the specific unmet needs and priorities of women with Parkinson’s. The national forum will gather experts from the patient, research, and health care communities, to utilize these insights to develop an agenda and action plan to change the landscape of Parkinson’s care.
