C68 - Approach to the Shaky Patient

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Movement Disorders
Director(s): Vicki Shanker MD
Description: Tremor is a common presentation in the neurologist's office and may be normal or pathologic. Although phenomenologically there are several characteristic differences of the disease states that produce these tremors, parkinsonian tremor, essential tremor, and dystonic tremor are often confused, leading to early misdiagnosis and delay in care. Through didactic lecture and video clips, in addition to case-based presentations, faculty will review key distinguishing characteristics of common and uncommon disease entities that produce tremor and provide clinical pearls for diagnosis. This program is geared for general practitioners and trainees.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize the clinical features of a parkinsonian tremor, essential tremor, and dystonic tremor as well as less common tremor conditions, and be able to apply clinical techniques to distinguish these disease entities in the office.
