Description: Integrative Medicine is a medical approach that preferentially uses therapeutic lifestyle interventions, stress-reduction, and behavioral interventions as adjunct therapy for chronic medical conditions. A growing body of literature confirms that diet modification, physical activity, and mind-body interventions can improve outcomes for patients with neurologic disease. Trained faculty will review evidence and offer practical tools that allow application of integrative therapies in the inpatient and outpatient setting suitable for neurologists or health care professionals at any level of training.
Completion Message: Participants will understand the tenants of integrative neurology and its practical application, become familiar with the evidence base for lifestyle interventions in specific neurologic conditions, and learn how to counsel patients in a motivational interviewing style.
