C139 - Behavioral Neurology: A Case-based Approach

Event Time: Tuesday April 25, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology
Director(s): A. Barrett MD, FAAN
Description: Accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment in behavioral neurology requires the development of specialized localization skills, similar to other subspecialties in neurology. Clinical cases of cognitive and behavioral decline will be presented as though in the clinical setting using actual patient video, with course participants guiding the clinical history and focused exam, generating a differential diagnosis, reviewing relevant data, and formulating a treatment plan via the audience response system. Faculty will highlight salient features in the cases and describe important techniques in the history and exam to optimize time spent with similar patients. Current evidence regarding diagnostic tools, accuracy of diagnosis, and treatments will also be discussed. Cases will represent atypical, non-Alzheimer's dementia and dementia accompanying other neurological disorders.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with evaluation and differential diagnosis in behavioral neurology, including bedside mental status screening, neuroimaging, and genetic testing in patients who present for evaluation of cognitive decline.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement
