My daughter has just started her new job as a Nursing Assistant in our local Hospital and she was very surprised at how little the ward staff know about PD when I was in the same establishment for a refit in march, it was plainly apparent that the staff looking after me were not up to speed on this horrible disease, now this is not a complaint, I was looked after extremely well and the nursing staff are second to none, but I would have thought a little education Re- PD would make things run smoother, both from the patients and the staffs point of view.
Best wishes to all Fed
absolutely, fed, though the same could be said about many GPs and the odd Neurologist.
on the devils advocate side, medical information is now so huge that no human can begin to take it all in.
more use will have to be made of intelligent computer systems to check for drug interactions, symptom analysis etc.
Hello Old Friend
I am so pleased to hear from you I hope you are well. Your comments are correct of course however I have taken part in many meetings at NTGH solely to educate and inform Nurses Doctors and the odd GP with community health care professionals also attending some were sadly lacking in even basic knowledge of the horrors of living with PD.
Glad to hear from you Turnip and all the best for christmas and new year.
All the best to you to Fed

Cheers fed, have a good xmas & family
i am getting Oliver Sack's book on hallucinations for christmas, You might find it useful - its very heavy so you could throw it at the cat. [hope you dont mind an attempt at a little humour]. but seriously it might be useful,i'll let you know after i've read it if you want.
I would appreciate that very much, and you can rest assured it will be in good hands, but I wont be throwing it at the cat I have a big pile of the Margaret Thatcher auto biography (How to wreck heavy industry mining and the shipyards ) with a fore
word by IDS ! he is not so quiet now is he, I found them in a skip. but if you let me know if its a good read and we will take it from there, as I was saying before I interrupted myself I use thatchers books as anti cat artillery and they burn well in the woodburner, now where have I put Camerons. I find they quickly turn to a soggy compost, a bit like his promises pre election.this is how I feel
Tis the season2B merry NOT,my wife scolds me for my attitude but I cant help it.
