C46 - Resident Basic Science III: Neuropharmacology

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Topic(s): Research Methodology, Education, and History
Director(s): James Owens MD, PhD
Description: Neurology now has an "embarrassment of riches" when it comes to pharmacological treatment. As our understanding of the basic neurobiology of disease progresses, this pharmacopeia continues to expand and to involve novel agents. Faculty will review basic pharmacological principles important for medication selection as well as facilitate an expanded understanding of the treatment of epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and sleep disorders. Presentations will include discussion of drug targets and mechanisms punctuated by illustrative cases. This program complements C5: Resident Basic Science I: Neuroanatomy—All the Lesions and C16: Resident Basic Science II: Neuropathology, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to discuss basic pharmacological concepts relevant to the clinical practice of neurology as well as an approach to medication selection for patients with epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and sleep disorders based on an understanding of pharmacological mechanisms of action and pharmacokinetcs.
CME Credits: 3.5
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care
