Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP)

This is a teaching session for healthcare professionals who see people affected by PSP.

Never heard off it? Shame on you!

PSP is as common as Motor Neurone Disease and has a poor prognosis. The symptoms are progressive, there is no cure and treatment is largely centred around support for patients, family and carers.

To make matters worse, it is usually misdiagnosed as Parkinson’s disease although, in fact, it is very different.

I hope you find the lecture helpful and am really grateful to Margaret and David for allowing me to post their story online.

Apologies for the sound quality – my microphone packed in at the start of the talk!
