C34 - Evaluating Tremor in the Office

Event Time: Saturday May 4, 2019 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm
Topic(s): Movement Disorders, Foundations in Clinical Neurology
Director(s): Andres Deik Acosta Madiedo MD
Description: This program is designed for general neurologists, trainees, or mid-level providers caring for patients with movement disorders. Tremor is a relatively common chief complaint at the general neurologist's office, but also one that can be easily misdiagnosed. In the absence of confirmatory tests, the neurologic and movement disorder examinations remain the most useful tools to distinguish between tremor types. Through didactic lecture and video clips, in addition to case-based presentations, faculty will review key distinguishing characteristics of common and uncommon disease entities that produce tremor and provide clinical pearls for diagnosis. At the conclusion of this program, attendees are invited to "continue the conversation" by engaging in small group conversation with the director and faculty.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize the clinical features of a parkinsonian tremor, essential tremor, and dystonic tremor as well as less common tremor conditions, and be able to apply clinical techniques to distinguish these disease entities in the office.
CME Credits: 2
