Description: The program is designed to improve participants' competence and performance in mental status assessment in neurology. The program will cover four important areas: basic cognitive-brain relationships, the clinical assessment of neurocognition at the bedside and in clinic, the nature of mental status scales, and the relationship of neurocognitive testing and neuropsychological tests and assessment. Competence in neurocognitive assessment is important in the evaluation of all neurological patients as an integral part of the neurological examination. Attendees should derive greater confidence in how to perform a neurocognitive assessment and how to interpret it. The presentation will be didactic with clinical material. Audience participation is encouraged. This course is recommended for all neurologists.
