C99 - Good Neurology in Challenging Conditions: Lessons from Military Neurology

Event Time: Tuesday April 24, 2018 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Jeffrey McClean MD, FAAN
Description: Military neurologists deal with neurological disease in unique settings including resource-limited combat theaters and humanitarian missions while treating patients faced with extreme physical demands. Lessons learned from military practice offer an opportunity for all neurologists to enhance their ability to care for patients, regardless of the setting. The 2017 National Defense Authorization Act encourages military health care providers to build co-operative partnerships with civilian health care systems to maintain military readiness, increasing opportunities for collaboration. Speakers will offer a brief overview of the scope and practice of military neurology and provide updates on important topics identified in a large and unique population of active duty service members.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to better understand unique issues in military neurology, use lessons learned from military experience in their civilian practice, and recognize opportunities to collaborate with military providers on populations with shared disease burden or risk-factor/exposure profiles.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Systems-Based Practice
