Therapists Educated & Aligned in Managing Parkinson's Disease
ACCESSIBLE CARE. Our goal is to enhance therapeutic care in outlying areas for people with Parkinson's who cannot easily reach the experts at our center. To that end, we have trained physical, occupational, speech therapists, social workers,and nurses in rehab teams throughout the region.
TEAM-PD. Therapists Educated & Aligned in Managing PD is a network of rehab teams trained by the OHSU Parkinson Center of Oregon (PCO) in the comprehensive team care approach we use, which is endorsed by movement disorder specialists worldwide. TEAM-PD grew out of the OHSU PCO's mission to develop and share excellence in care,research, and education for people with Parkinson’s disease (PWP), wherever they live. These programs train, promote, and research interdisciplinary care for people with PD. A team primarily consist of physical, occupational, and speech therapists, and when available, social workers and nurses, working with physicians to optimize care.
