Although very common amongst the elderly, most therapists still feel a need for a better understanding of movement disorders. Increasing debates on therapy guidelines and evidence-based medicine further support a coordinated multimodal treatment approach bringing together physicians and health professionals. This is exactly what our Interdisciplinary Working Group for Movement Disorders (IAB) wants to promote.
IAB wants to improve the exchange of experience by developing better communication tools and network structures between different professional groups. IAB wants to improve treatment of movement disorders by offering specific training programs and by developing treatment standards which can also be used for upcoming therapy guidelines and evidence-based evaluations. Eventually we want to improve the patient’s therapy satisfaction as well as our own job satisfaction as therapists.
