  1. Pre-consultation: Covers communication points and a brief reminder of key PD treatments for motor symptoms
  2. Starting the consultation
  3. Questions to ask in the consultation
  4. Ending the consultation: Includes questions that should be asked, and signposting and tips you can offer the patient.
