Parkinson's Foundation Team Training (Formerly ATTP) is a course designed by the Parkinson's Foundation to increase knowledge about Parkinson's disease (PD) and to build capacity for comprehensive, interprofessional care in the treatment of PD. This dynamic, interactive course offers an intensive curriculum. Since being launched in 2003, Team Training has trained more than 2,400 healthcare professionals in the best practices backed by the latest research in Parkinson's disease care through a dynamic team-based approach.
Originally launched in 2003, this program brings both new and well-established teams together for an intense in-person program to figure out how to work even more effectively as a team when treating individuals living with Parkinson's. This program is offered just once a year each fall.
In accordance with current CME educational theory, the most effective CME activities address the individual learner's needs. The proposed instructional design for this CME activity supports this principle of educational efficacy by offering a focused activity to bridge practice gaps for physicians, nurses, and other allied health professionals who may manage patients with Parkinson's disease (PD).
