So let's wrap up this video series.
is a progressive disease.
It's caused from an imbalance
of neurotransmitters acetylcholine
and dopamine in the brain.
That's what causes a decline
in the patient's ability
to control movement.
Now there's no cure for the motor symptoms
of Parkinson's disease.
And treatment goals
are to improve motor control
and quality of life
as much as possible.
So, with a health care team,
we're going to engage in collaborative care
with other health care professionals.
We're going to include the dietitians,
and we're all going to work together
to help maintain the patient's
personal level of safety
and functional abilities,
so we can help them live a quality life.
Now we're going to intentionally develop
a therapeutic relationship
with the caregiver
and the patient
or include them in the process
of assessing, planning, implementing,
and evaluating the patient's
unique plan of care.
Thanks for watching our video today.
