C65 - Child Neurology I: Pediatric Stroke, MS/Autoimmune

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Child Neurology and Developmental Neurology
Director(s): Marc Patterson MD, FAAN, FRACP
Description: This program focuses on disorders that are frequent and well recognized in adults, but which may be missed and undertreated in children. Stroke in neonates and children is less common than in adults, and its causes and presentations vary. Better diagnostic techniques and standardized treatment protocols have been developed, and will be described. Multiple sclerosis and other immune mediated disorders also occur in children; recent advances in understanding and management of these conditions will be reviewed. This program complements C80: Child Neurology II: Epilepsy and Neuromuscular, and C94: Child Neurology III: Headache, TBI/Post-concussion, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize the presentations and etiology of stroke, MS, and autoimmune disorders throughout childhood, and recommend and interpret appropriate investigations and implement data-driven management strategies.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement
