C232 - Movement Disorders for the General Neurologist II: Tremor, Drug-induced Movement Disorders, RLS, and Ataxia

Event Time: Friday April 28, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Movement Disorders
Director(s): John Morgan MD, PhD
Description: This is part two of a basic overview of movement disorders for the non-expert. The field of movement disorders is highly reliant upon visual recognition and differentiation among abnormal movements and differential diagnosis of potential underlying etiologies. Our faculty will aim to help clinicians recognize various abnormal movements and provide an overview of common and uncommon etiologies of these movements. Faculty will use videos, provide pointers that help in differential diagnosis in clinical practice, and discuss appropriate investigations in a patient presenting with various movement disorders. Faculty will also briefly discuss appropriate treatment. This program complements C223: Movement Disorders for the General Neurologist I: Diagnosis and Management of Parkinsonian Disorders and C240: Movement Disorders for the General Neurologist III: Chorea, Dystonia, Myoclonus, Stereotypes, and Tics, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize and classify the majority of common movement disorders and even some uncommon ones. They should be able to generate an appropriate differential diagnosis and initiate a cost-effective work-up. Participants should also be able to appropriately initiate symptomatic treatment for the major movement disorders discussed.
