Sunday April 22, 2018 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Practice, Policy, and Ethics
Jessica Erfan PA-C
The role of advanced practice providers (APP) in the care of neurologic patients is increasingly critical. This program will provide information for the early career APP and complements Clinical Neurology for APPs II. Neuroradiology training dedicated to APPs varies across the country. During the first hour, faculty will review neurodiagnostic imaging of the spine through clinical case presentations.
The psychosocial aspects of epilepsy can be as devastating as the seizures. Although learning appropriate epilepsy related treatment options is crucial for APPs, they are also responsible for counseling patients and families on lifestyle modifications that may improve their quality of life. During the second hour, faculty will highlight appropriate psychosocial aspects of epilepsy including driving, employment, SUDEP, safety, and liability.
This program complements C51: Clinical Neurology for Advanced Practice Providers II.
Participants should become familiar with ordering and interpreting spine neuroimaging. Additionally, participants will recognize and discuss psychosocial aspects of patients with epilepsy.
