DD SIG: The Clinical Practice Guideline for PT Management of Parkinson Disease – with Miriam Rafferty – Episode 29  

A Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) for PT management of PD was recently published in the Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Journal in December, 2021. In this episode, Parm talks to Miriam Rafferty, an author of the CPG and co-chair of the CPG knowledge translation task force, about the development of this new guideline. They discuss the goals of the CPG and highlights intervention featured in the paper, as well as nuances about application to PT practice. This podcast gives both an introduction to the CPG for listeners who haven’t read it, and “behind the scenes” insights for listeners who have.
