The Management of Parkinson's Disease by Ruth Pinder
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Uncertainty is part of the human condition. But for patients with a chronic illness such as Parkinson's Disease and for the GPs who care for them, uncertainty and its management take on an added edge. Dr Pinder, in a series of moving portraits, shows how the differing anxieties of both parties may, if unacknowledged, lead them down different paths, with distressing consequences for patients. By contrast, a responsive GP may make living with P.D. more bearable. The author argues that an imaginative understanding of the illness experience may enable GPs to care more effectively for their chronically ill patients. The book presents a compelling case for looking afresh at patient-doctor interaction.
