||Faculty will use case-based, didactic, and interactive teaching methods to illustrate a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating the spectrum of disorders associated with frontotemporal degeneration (FTD). Case studies will highlight the core features and differential diagnosis of FTD-spectrum disorders, and didactic material will support discussion of different pathophysiological substrates, associated movement disorders, brain imaging, genetic testing, and comprehensive management strategies.
||Participants should enhance their expertise in recognizing and managing FTD-related disorders and improve clinical assessment skills in cognitive, behavioral, and motor areas; enhance knowledge regarding appropriate use of diagnostic brain imaging and genetic testing, when indicated; and be able to employ a comprehensive therapeutic strategy based on current empirical approaches and an understanding of potential future therapies.
