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.
