Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Alberto Espay MD, FAAN
Description: Participants should be able to recognize and properly deliver the diagnosis of functional neurologic disorders, a crucial step in ensuring acceptance of the diagnosis and adherence and response to treatment. We will discuss cognitive behavioral therapy and other treatment modalities, in both outpatient and inpatient settings, including motor reprogramming and tremor retrainment, coordinated with the help of an interdisciplinary team to harness their potential in reducing burden of functional disability. This program complements C198: Functional Neurologic Disorders I: Movement, Non-epileptic Seizures, and MS-like Disorders, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to empathetically but assertively disclose the diagnosis of a functional neurologic disorder, appreciate the rationale for cognitive behavioral therapy, and coordinate the interdisciplinary collaboration between cognitive therapists, physiotherapists, and other allied health personnel in addressing functional symptoms and disability.
