Hunting for Better Outcomes: Management Options for Huntington’s Disease
There are many knowledge gaps surrounding Huntington’s Disease. Providing clinicians with the right resources and information regarding the disease state and its impact is imperative. Providing psychologists, psychiatrists, dieticians, speech & language therapists, occupational therapists, family practitioners, and social workers with a multi-module educational series will allow them to be armed with an improved understanding of the fundamentals of HD, its chronic burden, and how to treat patients accordingly. This educational program aims to provide HCPs with knowledge and tools for improving overall patient outcomes in their practices.
