C216 - Balance and Gait Disorders

Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Movement Disorders
Director(s): Bastiaan Bloem MD, PhD
Description: Mobility is a prized ability. Disorders of balance and gait impair mobility, reduce independence, lead to falls and fall-related injuries, reduce quality of life, and are associated with reduced survival. Neurologists need to be able to recognize the clinical patterns of balance and gait disorders in order to diagnose and intervene effectively. Faculty will review the clinical exam of gait and balance and the latest classification for gait and balance disorders, then discuss video examples of various gait and balance disorders. Audience observations and questions about the video examples will be encouraged.
Completion Message: Participants should better appreciate the clinical importance of gait and balance disorders; gain techniques to improve their exam of gait and balance; learn to use the current classification of gait and balance disorders in a clinically useful manner; and learn to recognize several common gait and balance disorders.
