C167 - Autoimmune Neurology I Basics and Beyond: Autoimmune Encephalitis and Paraneoplastic Neurological Syndromes of the CNS and PNS

Event Time: Wednesday April 26, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Maarten Titulaer MD, PhD
Description: Recent years have been very exciting for autoimmune neurology: many new diseases have been discovered, providing possibilities to treat patients previously considered untreatable. Faculty will describe the full range of neural autoantibodies and their relevant clinical disorders (neurological, psychiatric, neuropediatric, and oncological), from encephalitis to the neuromuscular junction; including clinical pearls aiding diagnosis of autoimmune and paraneoplastic neurologic disorders, also covering differential diagnosis, investigations, and treatment. This course will cover the basics, and go somewhat beyond, but be less advanced than the Autoimmune Neurology II course. Although both courses stand alone, overlap is minimized, and physicians are encouraged to complete both courses. This program complements C182: Autoimmune Neurology II Advanced: Autoimmune Encephalitis—At the Frontiers of Neuroscience, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to understand the autoantibody nomenclature; recognize autoimmune neurologic disorders; know the neurologic and cancer associations of the autoantibodies; know the pitfalls in antibody testing; know the appropriate oncological evaluations for paraneoplastic neurologic disorders; and know some treatment regimens for autoimmune neurologic disorders.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement
