C44 - Genomic Neurology Workshop: Developing Practical Knowledge of Tools and Concepts Through Case Studies I

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Jeffery Vance MD, PhD
Description: A link to the pre-session online module can be found on page 2 of the Text Syllabus for this program. Attendees should bring their laptops or tablets with them to the classroom to enable a hands-on experience using websites relevant to their practice. This program will introduce genomic databases that neurologists can use in their own practices. Team-based learning (TBL) will allow participants to work together using online genomics tools to answer practical clinical questions in a case-based format. Participants will receive instructional materials prior to the workshop. This flipped-classroom model allows more classroom time for performance-based, as opposed to purely knowledge-based, learning. A brief pre-lecture will ensure participants understand the important concepts to proceed to the TBL activity. Teams will answer case questions related to practical issues in ordering and interpreting genomic testing. This program complements C61: Genomic Neurology Workshop: Developing Practical Knowledge of Tools and Concepts Through Case Studies II, but covers independent topics. However, attendees are strongly encouraged to attend both Part I and Part II of this course.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to list the factors that help determine which patients are appropriate candidates for neuro-genomic testing; determine, using online tools, the clinical significance of a genetic variant related to diagnosing and treating neurologic disease; describe key aspects of informed consent for genomic analyses; describe the process of next-generation sequencing data analysis; and describe the benefits and limitations of integrative genomic analyses for patients with neurologic disease, including managing incidental findings.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement
