Event Time: Sunday April 22, 2018 8:00 am to 9:10 am
ELA Type: Research Corner
Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Kailash Bhatia MD, FAAN, Roy Alcalay MD
Description: Genetic testing is not well integrated in the evaluation of patients with movement disorders in clinical practice. Faculty will present demonstrative videos of various phenotypic presentations attributed to only one gene and phenotypic presentations attributed to multiple genes in patients with Parkinson disease, dystonia and chorea. In addition to increase clinician awareness of genetic differential diagnosis, this program will provide practical knowledge regarding the methods of ordering genetic tests and the pros and cons of different testing strategies. It will suggest strategies for optimizing insurance authorizations and appealing denials. This program was modeled after a very successful offering at the International Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorder Society Congress.
