C49 - Clinical Uses of Botulinum Toxin for Dystonia Skills Workshop

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Movement Disorders
Director(s): Diego Torres-Russotto MD, FAAN
Description: Chemodenervation is one of the most useful treatments for dystonias. Faculty will cover all presentations of the disorder that could benefit from this treatment and the full gamut of indications where botulinum toxin injections could be helpful. The course will also provide training in how to perform the injections. Faculty will begin with presentations reviewing cervical, periocular, oromandibular, and limb dystonias, and the evidence for chemodenervation; and review how to set up a successful chemodenervation practice. During the second half, attendees will participate in interactive sessions covering injection tips, dilution training, injection videos, and practice on simulation systems.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to list indications and contraindications for chemodenervation; select appropriate candidates for botulinum toxin injections in dystonia; recognize the phenomenology that leads to the development of an injection plan in patients; and review best practices for the establishment of a successful chemodenervation clinic.
CME Credits: 4
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement
