What Do I Do Now?: Neurologic Consultations in Cancer Patients II
Wednesday April 25, 2018 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Patrick Wen MD, FAAN
Faculty will discuss the medical and neurologic management of patients with brain tumors and provide an update on the recent advances in treatment of brain tumors; the recent advances in diagnosis and management of paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes; and approximately 10 cases neurologists may encounter when consulting on cancer patients.
This program complements C149: What Do I Do Now?: Neurologic Consultations in Cancer Patients I, but covers independent topics.
Participants should be able to diagnose and treat medical and neurologic complications in brain tumors patients, diagnose and manage paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes, and recognize and treat both common and rare neurologic complications in cancer patients.
