The Canadian edition of Every Victory Counts® is the gold-standard resource to do exactly that.
With contributions by 50 leading Parkinson’s physicians, allied health professionals, and Canadians living with Parkinson’s, this comprehensive resource equips you with the tools for understanding your Parkinson’s and taking control of your future.
Here’s a sneak peek of what you will find inside:

An in-depth breakdown of motor, emotional, cognitive and autonomic non-motor symptoms, and a close look at causes, progression and types of Parkinsonism, and diagnosis.
- Section 2: Parkinson’s treatments & therapies
Explaining medications, treatments and surgical options available in Canada, with an emphasize on exercise, nutrition and alternative therapies to help you live well.

The Every Victory Counts® Canadian Edition worksheets, checklists and assessments are a great way to help you manage your Parkinson’s and learn more about yourself.
Use them to become more aware of the timing and characteristics of your symptoms, document those symptoms, note changes and discuss them with your doctor. You can also log progress toward achieving your wellness goals, such as exercise, and see how far you’ve come and where you need to go.
Once you download them, the documents are designed to be filled out on your computer or tablet. You can then print them out and take them to your next appointment, conversation or treatment session.
The Davis Phinney Foundation’s Every Victory Counts® manual has long received accolades for its ability to give people all over the world their footing after receiving their Parkinson’s diagnosis. The Canadian Edition builds on this reputation and continues to help those impacted by Parkinson’s learn about it at their own pace.
“The Every Victory Counts® manual is an active part of my life. It is not something that lives on a shelf.” – Jill Ater
“I appreciate the manual’s fundamental perspective, which is to empower people to live well with Parkinson’s today. I routinely recommend this manual to my patients, whether they are newly diagnosed or have been living with Parkinson’s for years.”– Aaron Hauge, MD
“There is good news and bad news with the publication of the Canadian edition of the Every Victory Counts® manual. The bad news is that it shows that Parkinson’s doesn’t respect boundaries and doesn’t discriminate – its impact is wide-spread and is a life-changing event. The good news, however, is that the manual has a wealth of information on how to live your best life with it – until the day that a cure is found.” – Larry Linton, Parkinson Canada Board Member
Une version française de À Chaque Victoire® sera disponible à l’automne 2022.
