Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the physiology of movement
  • Review basal ganglia anatomy and chemistry
  • Describe the phenomenology of hyperkinetic movement disorders
  • Identify appropriate treatment options for hyperkinetic movement disorders
  • Understand that treatment of Parkinson's disease may induce a hyperkinesia
  • Increase clinical skills to diagnose the etiology and pathogenesis of specific hyperactive movement disorders, and appropriately select treatment (medical and surgical) in individual cases

Target Audience

This course is designed for clinical neurologists, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, psychiatrists, primary care physicians, residents, and fellows. Any person, especially those in the health profession, who wishes to enhance his knowledge of movement disorders may attend this course.

Course Description

This live educational activity will cover not only treatment but also the phenomenology, pathophysiology, etiopathogenesis, epidemiology, genetics, and other aspects of hyperkinetic movement disorders. Because of the rapidly evolving field and growing therapeutic options, it is important that those providing care for movement disorder patients be aware of available therapies and the results of current clinical trials. Staying current on the most recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment as well as updating knowledge about current standards of care is essential for optimal health care delivery with the ultimate goal to halt the progression of the disease and to improve the quality of life of patients with movement disorders.
