Effective multidisciplinary management and support of patients with Parkinson’s disease can have an enormously positive effect on quality of life, and that’s the focus throughout this refreshingly readable resource. With the patient’s experience at its core, Fast Facts: Parkinson’s Disease takes the non-specialist through the patient’s Parkinson’s journey from unexplained prodromal symptoms to palliative support. It includes:

  • the latest diagnostic techniques
  • effective management strategies for both motor and non-motor complications
  • neurosurgical treatments and candidate assessment
  • the latest pharmacological developments
  • multidisciplinary palliative care.

This practical handbook reflects the importance of addressing non-motor symptoms, the need for multidisciplinary care and the use of tools that empower patients. It is a truly useful and unique resource that will help all doctors, nurses and therapists to provide the best possible care for their patients with Parkinson’s disease or related disorders.


"PD carries great disease burden and this book is a highly useful concise guide on this. It is condense enough to serve either as an introductory guide or an accessible guide for healthcare professionals or caregivers, depending on the level of information required. It is written in a narrative style that is easy to read. The chapters are in a logical sequence and it is possible to refer at a glance. Information is presented under a good number of subheadings which makes easier navigation in comparison to some other alternative larger books which contain continuous text."
2017 BMA Book Awards, Highly Commended in Neurology

"This book should be on the shelf of every health care provider dealing with Parkinson's disease patients.”

Dr Matthew Stern, President, International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society

“Well-structured, comprehensive and highly readable. The excellent illustrations together with a synopsis at the end of each chapter cleverly consolidate the breadth of up-to-date information on the many facets of the Parkinson’s journey.  The emphasis on holistic care and improving quality of life for people living with the condition makes this essential reading for the multidisciplinary team.”

The European Parkinson’s Disease Association

“This book is really well done. It is comprehensive and current, yet concise – a must-have for treating PD.”

David G Standaert MD PhD, Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Committee, American Parkinson Disease Association

"We are thrilled to see such a wonderful response to the book.  People are hungry for medical information and this perfectly fits the bill !"

Vice President of Development and Marketing, American Parkinson’s Disease Association
