C238 - Epilepsy Skills Workshop

Event Time: Friday April 28, 2017 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology (EEG)
Director(s): William Tatum DO, FAAN
Description: In an era of technology, an often-lost art in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy involves recognizing the importance of a hands-on approach to patient care. This workshop will use a case study approach within small group-dedicated workstations. The goal is to facilitate practical learning that will enhance the ability to extract clinical information regarding an accurate seizure and epilepsy diagnosis for the purposes of optimizing personalized treatment. Topics that will be addressed include EEG interpretation, video EEG monitoring, childhood epilepsy syndromes, seizure emergencies, and outpatient clinical medical and surgical decision-making that is designed to optimize quality care in epilepsy. An emphasis on clinical pearls gleaned from the history, physical examination, and diagnostic evaluation will provide the foundation for treatment selection. Faculty will emphasize skills pertaining to common errors, misinterpretation, gaps, and pitfalls using case studies, protocols that involve a Sim-man in the status epilepticus portion of the workshop, and a hands-on demonstration of neuromodulation. Groups will be limited to 20 attendees to permit a focused individualized approach to guide the evaluation process of patient management depicting common scenarios by an expert faculty facilitator.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the essential skills required for effective emergency management of seizures in the hospital and at the bedside. Identifying commonly misdiagnosed EEG patterns, typical semiologies necessary to make accurate diagnoses will be appreciated. Addressing common chief complaints of patients with seizures and epilepsy who present to the outpatient clinic will be attained. Attendees will be able to apply new definitions and terminology to patients with seizures, and will be able to integrate newer forms of treatment including new antiseizure drugs, formulations, surgical techniques and neuromodulation into the treatment regimens of both the pediatric and adult patient with epilepsy.
