C69 - Therapy of Neuromuscular Disease: ALS, Inflammatory Neuropathies and Myopathies, and Myasthenia Gravis

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Michael Weiss MD, FAAN
Description: Many neuromuscular diseases are immune-mediated and are treatable and potentially curable. Regrettably, diseases like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are not, but even patients with ALS can see substantial improvements in quality of life and survival with proper therapy. Faculty will provide up-to-date and concise guidelines for the management of ALS, inflammatory neuropathies and myopathies, and myasthenia gravis.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the current management of ALS, inflammatory neuropathies and myopathies, and myasthenia gravis.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care
