For some of us a diagnosis of Parkinson’s is devastating. For others it is more neutral.
PM is thinking of putting together a book(let) entitled “Breaking the News”, aimed at physicians/neurologists and intended (1) to show them the impact a diagnosis of PD has on the recipient, and (2) to show them what they do well and how to do better.
We would be very interested in your individual experiences and thoughts on how to improve the process of telling a person they have PD.
Was it reassuring/upsetting? How could the doctor have done better?
General/specific thoughts. By all means respond (by message to me) if you prefer to remain anonymous.
