Faculty will comprehensively cover aspects of diagnosing and managing patients with seizure disorders; review the new ILAE classification scheme, Epilepsy Quality Measures, and the primary goals of accurate diagnosis and selection of appropriate first-line medications; address common psychiatric comorbidities; review the latest advances in each topic discussed; emphasize issues most useful to clinical practice by using a case-based approach; and use video case presentations to illustrate the differential diagnosis of seizure-like events and how to classify seizures.
This program complements C41: Clinical Epilepsy II: Considerations Across the Age Span—Pediatrics, Pregnancy and Elderly and C58: Clinical Epilepsy III: Advanced (Status, Beyond AED, Video EEG), but covers independent topics.
Participants should be able to efficiently and thoroughly evaluate a patient presenting with seizures, accurately apply the latest approved classification system for epilepsy, choose appropriate first-line treatments, and recognize and know how to evaluate common psychiatric comorbidities.
