C48 - Genomic Neurology Skills Workshop: Developing Practical Knowledge of Tools and Concepts Through Case Studies

Event Time: Sunday April 22, 2018 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Jeffery Vance MD, PhD
Description: Attendees should bring their laptops or tablets to enable hands-on experience using websites relevant to their practice. This program seeks to provide neurologists with knowledge of genomic databases, with emphasis on practical experience using key websites. Team-based learning (TBL) will allow participants to work together using online genomics tools to answer practical clinical questions in a case-based format. Participants will receive instructional materials prior to the workshop. This flipped-classroom model allows more classroom time for performance-based interaction with instructors. A brief pre-lecture will ensure participants understand the important concepts to proceed to the TBL activity, but lecture time is kept to a minimum, with emphasis on participants actually getting hands-on experience. Teams will answer case questions related to practical issues in ordering and interpreting genomic testing and using next-generation sequencing in practice.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to list the factors that help determine which patients are appropriate candidates for neuro-genomic testing; determine, using online tools, the clinical significance of a genetic variants related to diagnosing and treating neurologic disease; describe key aspects of informed consent for genomic analyses; describe the process of next-generation sequencing data analysis; and describe the benefits and limitations of integrative genomic analyses for patients with neurologic disease, including managing incidental findings, and be able to ask appropriate and knowledgeable questions when interacting with genetic specialists.
CME Credits: 4
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement
