Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

The symptom of fatigue was shown to be an effector for quality of life (QOL) in people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) independently from motor function–related PD symptoms. Intervention to improve specific aspects of fatigue is recommended to promote better QOL for people with PD.
