C2 - Functional Neurologic Disorders I: Movement, Seizures, and Multiple Sclerosis

Event Time: Saturday April 21, 2018 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): General Neurology, Foundations in Clinical Neurology for APPs
Director(s): Alberto Espay MD, FAAN
Description: Through an emphasis on case-based learning, this course will cover the clinician’s approach to the diagnosis and initial management of functional movement disorders, functional non-epileptic seizures, and functional neurological disorders misdiagnosed as multiple sclerosis, including the approach to delivering the diagnosis in an assertive and sympathetic fashion and remove inappropriate medications to minimize iatrogenic harm. Therapeutic strategies will be discussed to a greater extent in Functional Neurologic Disorders II, which this program complements but does not replace. This program complements C12: Functional Neurologic Disorders II: Life Experiences and Management of Functional Disorders, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should recognize the pearls and pitfalls in the diagnosis of the most common functional neurologic disorders, and be in a position to apply strategies to minimize iatrogenic harm, correct misdiagnoses, and initiate a treatment plan.
