Do you ever go into appointments with your neurologist feeling like your symptoms that day are not a true representation of what you experience day-to-day? It's common for people with Parkinson's to report symptoms "hiding", or otherwise being difficult to recognize on days you may have an appointment with your neurologist. This makes it difficult to communicate how you feel on an average day or at extremes. Without a clear picture of your symptoms, treatment may be more difficult. The ParkiTrack booklet was created with this problem in mind.
ParkiTrack is a symptom tracker that helps you note daily symptoms and fluctuations, including "on" and "off" periods with your medication. This information can then be shared with your neurologist to help optimize your treatment.
Join Liz Janze, Education & Support Services Coordinator at Parkinson Society BC (PSBC), for an online training session on how to use the new ParkiTrack booklet, available digitally and in print. Questions will be taken at the end of the training session.
Please note that a copy of ParkiTrack is not required to attend the session. Both people with Parkinson's and carepartners/caregivers are encouraged to attend.
