Considering the limited access to speech-language therapy services for people with Parkinson’s Disease (PwPD), online educational videos addressing speech and swallowing symptoms and self-management strategies may benefit this patient population. Aiming to evaluate the impact and appreciation of such videos, we invited PwPD to complete an online survey one week before, immediately after, and two-months after watching an educational video on communication or swallowing. Results from the comparison of respondents’ level of knowledge and confidence in self-managing their symptoms at each time point will be presented along with the results from our qualitative analysis of respondents’ impression of the videos.
