Résumé :

Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a progressive, degenerative neurologic disorder. Although there is no known cure for PD, treatment can often prolong the patient's life, improve mobility and function, and enhance dignity and quality of life. Early detection of PD is essential to effective treatment.

Understanding all the manifestations of the disease; the importance of basic, competent primary nursing and medical care; the roles of various disciplines, therapies, and specialties; and the concept of realistic goal setting for the individual patient are essential to effective treatment of PD. Effective treatment should be multifaceted, taking into consideration the patient's physical, spiritual, social, and emotional needs and concerns, as well as those of the family.

Potential benefits associated with the implementation of this guideline include:
Better management of PD, allowing patients to maintain their highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial function;
Greater individualization of care;
Better documentation of, and rationale for, patients' personal goals and decision-making processes regarding their disease and its treatment;
More appropriate pharmacologic therapy for PD;
More appropriate practitioner participation in the care of the patient with PD;
Improved patient and family satisfaction with care;
More appropriate resource utilization;
Improved treatment and monitoring protocols;
Improved staff education and awareness of this complex progressive disease; and
More appropriate and timely referral to palliative care and hospice.
