October 14, 2013 - Here is a closer look at John Ball's poster entitled, Managing Parkinson's disease symptoms while being hospitalized with non-PD related conditions. It was presented at the 2013 World Parkinson Congress (WPC) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The poster provides a systematic approach to preparing oneself for a hospital visit unrelated to Parkinson's disease (PD). The key to shorter hospital stays is PD medication self-management by the patient or care-partner. One should also be prepared to adjust medications due to stress from the current condition.
