Previous program participants have requested and supported the need for a comprehensive review and update in selected areas for the practicing neurologist with a focus on movement disorders. As clinical neurology continues to evolve with the explosion of discoveries in the neurosciences, the neurology faculty and the CME planning committee strongly concur with the need to such a conference.
At the conclusion of the activity, the participant should be able to:
- Describe appropriate use of thrombolytics in acute ischemic stroke, and recognize potential complications
- Evaluate appropriate medication usage in women with epilepsy across their lifetime
- Discuss new and emerging treatments for multiple sclerosis
- Evaluate patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and discuss the role of multidisciplinary care
- Compare the outcomes of treatment of younger vs. older patients with Parkinson’s disease, including the rationale for initiating treatment of patients in these two categories
- Differentiate different types of hyperkinetic movement disorders and evaluate different treatment approaches
- Discuss current and future treatment approaches to cognitive disorders, including Alzheimer disease and those related to movement disorders.
