C198 - Functional Neurologic Disorders I: Movement, Non-epileptic Seizures, and MS-like Disorders

Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Alberto Espay MD, FAAN
Description: Through an emphasis on case-based learning, this course will cover the clinician's approach to the diagnosis and initial management of functional movement disorders, functional non-epiletic seizures, and multiple sclerosis-like disorders, including the approach to remove inappropriate medications to minimize iatrogenic harm and “undiagnose” patients with previous diagnosis of epilepsy or multiple sclerosis. This program complements C211: Functional Neurologic Disorders II: Management, CBT, and Inpatient Therapeutic Strategies, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should recognize the pearls and pitfalls in the diagnosis of the most common functional neurologic disorders and be in position to apply strategies to minimize iatrogenic harm, correct misdiagnoses, and initiate a treatment plan.
