Fact Sheet on Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD)

A valuable resource.

Click on this link to see the Fact Sheet on CBD published by the NIH's National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS):

Many forum members whose loved one was diagnosed with PSP found it helpful to print out copies of the fact sheet on PSP to give to doctors, nurses, and aides who see the patient. Those dealing with CBD may want to do the same thing with the CBD fact sheet. Most medical professionals (excluding knowledgeable neurologists) know little or nothing about PSP or CBD; many have never even heard of it.

As needs arise, patients may be referred to a family doctor, therapists, and other health care and/or social workers. Handing a copy of the Fact Sheet to these care providers will earn you their thanks and appreciation. It will help them grasp the basics quickly and assist them in understanding and serving the patient -- a benefit for everyone.

Also, you may find it helpful to distribute copies to relatives and close friends of the patient.
