With aging populations worldwide, we are seeing an increase in movement disorders associated with common age-related brain disorders such as stroke, and with neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and atypical parkinsonian disorders. Older adults may be less represented in new drug trials, and may be less likely to be able to travel to specialist centers. Therefore, we need to consider nuanced approaches to diagnosing, monitoring, and managing movement disorders in older adults that are tailored to their preferences and their other potential comorbidities. Many older adults with movement disorders are likely to have polypharmacy and comorbidities that may impact general mobility and management of the movement disorder and this causes additional complexities.
We seek submissions for this Special Issue of Geriatrics focused on Movement Disorders in Older Adults. Submissions may include original research articles or comprehensive reviews and will undergo formal peer review.
