Support for Health Professionals
The PSP Association provides a range of services and support for health and social care professionals working with those diagnosed with PSP and CBD, their carers and families. We do this in a number of ways:
We know that GPs often find it difficult to spot symptoms of PSP and CBD and that many have not come across these conditions before. Sadly, this often means people receive a delayed diagnosis, or are misdiagnosed with other conditions such as stroke and Parkinson’s.
GPs and others in the primary healthcare team can make a great difference to the quality of life of people with PSP and CBD, with timely care, support and symptom management. The information below gives practical tips on the care of people with these conditions, and the role you and the primary healthcare team can play.
