This course will provide a working knowledge of the most common neurological problems and reinforce principles of clinical diagnosis while reviewing the symptoms and signs of most major neurological diseases. The seminar will also present clear, practical guidelines for managing these common problems including how to integrate laboratory tests and imaging techniques into the patient's evaluation. Finally, the current treatment for these disorders will be developed in sufficient detail to permit independent management or active participation in care with the neurologist.
Emphasis will be placed on clinical diagnosis and practical treatment with introduction of clinical neuroscience as needed to clarify management issues.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to: recognize the symptoms and signs of the most common neurological diseases; apply fundamental disease concepts to patient management; educate their patients regarding the basic concepts and natural history of these diseases and participate with their patients and consulting neurologists in decisions regarding modern disease therapy and prevention.
This seminar will be relevant to family practitioners, internists, neurologists and others who manage patients with neurological disorders.
