Convenient and Comprehensive Online CME
The Neurology for Non-Neurologists online CME course covers the full scope of clinical neurology: commonly encountered patient complaints such as dizziness, back pain, seizures, and movement disorders, as well as special, common topics that can be mis- or underdiagnosed. Speakers in this continuing medical education program are highly skilled with vast experience educating non-neurologists.
As new neurological therapeutics become available, it can be difficult for the non-neurologist to stay abreast. It is important that these clinicians — often the first a patient consults — are familiar with the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and prognosis associated with neurological conditions.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Identify the cause of dizziness in a patient in order to manage the condition effectively
- Recognize sleep disorders and formulate appropriate treatments
- Identify serious illnesses that result in back and neck pain
- Differentiate between ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes
- Recognize the signs and symptoms of multiple sclerosis
- Explain the current methods of evaluating and treating seizures
- Differentiate between primary headaches and headaches that result from systemic disorders
- Describe the neurological complications that result from systemic cancers
- Discuss the methods of recognizing and treating neuropathies
- Describe distinguishing characteristics of cognitive and behavioral disorders
- Identify the differences between hyperkinetic and hypokinetic movement disorders
- Explain methods of treating acute and chronic pain
- Summarize the neurological complications of vitamin deficiencies
The activity was designed for internists, family physicians, emergency physicians, psychiatrists, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, obstetricians/gynecologists (who act as primary care physicians), adolescent medicine physicians, geriatricians, resident and fellows in the above specialties and nurse practitioners and physician assistants in the above specialties.
