Neurology providers are caring for an increasing number of patients with infections of the nervous system and associated neurological complications. In this case-based interactive course, an interdisciplinary panel of experts from both neurology and infectious diseases will share their approach to challenging neuroinfectious diseases cases. An emphasis will be placed on an up-to-date, evidence-based approach to complicated cases combined with on-the-ground experience from clinical experts in the field.
Participants will improve their skills in the evaluation and management of neuroinfectious diseases, with a focus on high-yield clinical pearls in advanced topics such as: Selection of antimicrobial therapy, CNS penetration and neurological toxicities of antimicrobial therapy, drug-drug interactions with frequently used medications in neurology, timing and duration of corticosteroid therapy for neurological infections, management of common complications of CNS infections (e.g., increased intracranial pressure), and utility of laboratories for monitoring response to therapy.
