C209 - Clinical Usefulness of Botulinum Toxin for Spasticity Skills Workshop

Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Movement Disorders
Director(s): Allison Brashear MD, MBA, FAAN
Description: Chemodenervation is one of the most useful treatments for dystonias. However, most neurologists struggle to recognize all presentations of the disorder, or to understand the full gamut of indications where botulinum toxin injections could be helpful. Also, most physicians have not been trained to perform the injections. Faculty will begin with presentations reviewing cervical, periocular, oromandibular, and limb dystonias, and the evidence for chemodenervation; review how to set-up a successful chemodenervation practice; and lead interactive learning, providing first a session on tips for best injections, and a demonstration session with videos, and simulation systems.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to enlist indications and contraindications for chemodenervation; select appropriate candidates for botulinum toxin injections; recognize the phenomenology that leads to the development of an injection plan in patients; and review best practices for the establishment of a successful chemodenervation clinic.
