Key Topics in Neurology CME
This online CME program covers the breadth and depth of clinical neurology and its subspecialty areas, detailing the most current practical information. Comprehensive Review of Neurology comprises 50+ case-based continuing medical education lectures on topics like Alzheimer’s disease, headache, fatigue, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders, and more. You’ll get expert take-home points from each lecture, including:
- Functional Movement Disorders. Functional neurological disorders can be diagnosed with positive signs and symptoms, and are not only diagnosed by exclusion.
- Back and Neck Pain. While pain radiating to the extremities is often caused by nerve root compression, axial spine pain is generally from musculoskeletal causes rather than nerve compression.
- Concussion. Concussion has reached epidemic proportions and clinicians must be able to diagnose, provide guidance following injury, and manage common symptoms.
- Social Networks in Neurology. The influence of social relationships on risk for mortality is comparable with well-established risk factors for mortality.
