Topic: Managing Chronic Pain with Traditional and Alternative Treatments

We are having a very special program at our January meeting.  Based on the positive feedback we had from our April 2012 "Q & A Panel of Doctors", we are repeating the same meeting program format with another "Q & A Panel of Doctors".   We will have doctors and specialists, who treat Parkinson patients and Fibromyalgia patients who have chronic pain.

What is Chronic Pain? Click here to find out from the National Institute of Health Neurological Disorders and Stroke web site

You will have an opportunity to meet the doctors and to ask your questions in an open forum about living with and managing chronic pain.

Note: This January meeting will last "a little longer" than our regular meetings (no longer than 5:00 p.m.) due to this special
"Q & A panel of Doctors" program, thus allowing more time for questions and answers.

SUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT CHRONIC PAIN TO THE PANEL AHEAD OF TIME!  We will have doctors and specialists, who treat Parkinson and Fibromyalgia patients.  You will have an opportunity to meet the doctors, and to ask your questions about living with chronic pain in this open forum. 

Please send your questions to this email address contact@columbiaparkinsonsupportgroup.org and enter in the "Subject" line of your email "January Pain Meeting Questions".   As always, we respect your privacy and we will not reveal your personal information (e.g., email address, name, etc.).

Topic: Depression & Self Esteem/Identity

Speaker: Wendy Baker

Wendy is a great speaker. She creates a safe environment where the meeting attendees want to get involved in the discussion.

Depression affects almost half of all people with Parkinson's disease, and it's part of the illness, not a result, research shows.

"For people with Parkinson’s, depression is quite common and disabling—and it is the symptom most often overlooked. Up to 60 percent of people with Parkinson’s experience mild or moderate depressive symptoms. In fact, research suggests that the disease itself causes chemical changes in the brain that may lead to depression." Click here to read the full Parkinson's Disease Foundation article.

"In Parkinson's disease, depression may be treated with psychological therapy, as well as with medications. People seem to do better when they receive both psychological and drug treatments." Click here to read the full WebMed Article.

Topic: Open Forum

For our open forum meetings, we usually start with a theme or topic and go from there. Our members have an opportunity to share their own experiences; ask questions of each other; and help each other by proving solutions that they have for various issues, concerns, problems, etc.  At the open forum meetings, our members tell us they learn about things that they can't find in anywhere else, because they are learning directly from other Parkinson patients and their caregivers. These meetings are one of our most popular, and sometimes they get a little bit noisy because everyone wants to share!

Class Topic: Dementia - What We Should Know

Instructor: Adelle Stanley, dementia specialist

When we begin to see signs that someone we care about is experiencing memory impairment, it's a scary proposition. As frightening as it may be, we know that serious memory loss is not a normal part of aging, and should not be ignored by family members or medical providers. On the other extreme, we should not be quick to label a person's behavior or assume it is Alzheimer's disease or some irreversible condition. Rather, try to discourage making excuses or assumptions for troubling behaviors and encourage them and their loved ones to seek medical attention.

Speaker: Doctor Christina L. Vaughan , M.D., MHS, MS

Topic: Non- Motor Features of PD

"While historically Parkinson disease (PD)has been characterized as a ‘movement disorder,’ with diagnostic criteria associated only with such features, non-motor symptoms are sometimes present before diagnosis and almost inevitably emerge with disease progression. The non-motor symptoms dominate the clinical picture of advanced PD and contribute to severe disability and impaired quality of life. This talk will be a comprehensive review of the non-motor features of PD.”

Dr. Vaughan was awarded her M.D. from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences.

What is a PODCAST? A podcast is a series of digital media files, either audio or video, that is released and downloaded through web syndication. The mode of delivery is what differentiates podcasts from other ways of accessing media files over the Internet. New files can thus be downloaded automatically by the podcatcher and stored locally on the user's computer or other device for offline use, giving simpler access to content. Like the term broadcast, podcast can refer either to an ongoing series or episodes of a particular program.

What is a WEBCAST? A webcast is a media file distributed over the Internet using streaming media technology. A webcast may either be distributed live or on demand. Essentially, webcasting is “broadcasting” over the Internet.

What is a WEBINAR? A webinar is a specific type of web conference. It is typically one-way, from the speaker to the audience with limited audience interaction, such as in a webcast. A webinar can be collaborative, and include polling and question & answer sessions to allow full participation between the audience and the presenter.
