Topic(s): Neuro-ophthalmology/Neuro-otology
Director(s): Nancy Newman MD, FAAN
Description: Diagnostic error is the leading cause of death in the USA. One of the main causes of diagnostic error is thinking bias and inadequate diagnostic skills. Neuro-ophthalmologic cases are particularly prone to diagnostic and management errors because of its complexity and because many neurologic emergencies present with neuro-ophthalmologic complaints. In this course, numerous neuro-ophthalmologic cases involving both the visual afferent and efferent systems will be presented in which something "went wrong" during diagnosis or management. Practical clinical and management issues will be emphasized. This course is designed to enhance interaction between participants and faculty.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to correctly diagnose and manage clinical cases involving both afferent and efferent neuro-ophthalmological symptoms and signs.
CME Credits: 2
