ODP of chorea; ODP of psychiatric comorbidity

Collateral h/o would include info from Neurologist...

screen for all comorbidity...

physical examination would be important... atleast need to mention choreo athetoid movements

know some definitions

and rates of comorbidity in HD probably... and specific liaison management including MDT...

and general principles of treating a person with organic... start slow, go slow etc...
