C55 - Autoimmune Neurology II Advanced: Autoimmune Encephalitis at the Frontiers of Neuroscience

Event Time: Sunday April 22, 2018 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology, Neurohospitalist
Director(s): Maarten Titulaer MD, PhD
Description: Recent years have shown many discoveries of new antibodies. These new antibodies have broadened the horizon of these diseases, bordering with psychiatry, pediatrics, intensive care medicine, and (chronic) epilepsy. Many physicians struggle to keep up with all the new developments. Faculty will cover the newest developments, discuss caveats at diagnosis, test results, and treatment decisions. This course will be more advanced than the Autoimmune Neurology I course, and expects some basic knowledge of antibodies and the related syndromes. Overlap is minimized, and physicians are encouraged to complete both courses. This program complements C40: Autoimmune Neurology I Basics and Beyond: Autoimmune Encephalitis and Paraneoplastic Neurological Syndromes of the CNS and PNS, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to identify the different disorders; adequately assess consultations at the psychiatry, pediatric neurology, and epilepsy wards; be able to avoid the pitfalls associated with antibody testing; and identify the appropriate tumors associated with the different syndromes.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care
