WE MOVE (www.wemove.org) is pleased to announce the DBS-STN Programmers Discussion Forum at http://www.mdvu.org/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi

CAUTION: The WE MOVE DBS-STN Programmers Forum is for healthcare professionals ONLY.

If you had DBS-STN surgery, we ask that you tell your doctor about this forum to share experiences.

DBS-STN Programmers:
Do you have questions about DBS-STN programming? Have you made observations that you would like to share? Would you like to know how experienced programmers approach initial and follow-up programming, medication adjustment, and troubleshooting?

There is no "cookie cutter" approach to DBS-STN programming, but sharing information among professionals can be a great help.

To accelerate the learning curve, WE MOVE invites programmers to the DBS-STN Programmers Discussion Forum at http://www.mdvu.org/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi. The Forum is available 24/7 and enables novice programmers to post questions and receive responses from peers. Experienced programmers may benefit from the strategies for success from thier peers. The DBS-STN Programmers Discussion Forum is part of the WE MOVE Parkinson's Disease Educational Initiative and is funded by educational grants from Medtronic, Inc., The Parkinson Alliance, the Charles & Vivian Sukenik Philanthropic Foundation, and the Evan and Sandra Stern Foundation.

If you are a patient, family member, friend, or caregiver and have questions or concerns about DBS-STN, please join the DBS-STN discussion forum at http://www.dbs-stn.org/forum.asp. Margaret Tuchman moderates the Forum and advice is sought from experts on difficult issues.


Established in 1991, WE MOVE is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating and informing patients, healthcare professionals and the public about the latest clinical advances, management and treatment options for Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.
