C140 - Sports Neurology: Enhancing Athletic Performance

Event Time: Tuesday May 7, 2019 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Director(s): Bert Vargas MD, FAAN
Description: There is an increased demand to focus on neuroscience and neurologic function in the optimization of athletic performance. Several technology and pharmacologic products exist with claims to enhance neurologic performance. Many sports medicine providers, including neurologists, use these products but are limited in exposure to the evidence-base behind their claims and the regulations that govern their use in competition. Faculty will highlight several products that claim to enhance performance, discuss the existing evidence behind their claims, and outline current regulations regarding sports enhancing products in elite sports.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to identify techniques, medications, and strategies to enhance neurologic performance, resilience, cognitive reserve, and sensorimotor function in athletes in the context of existing supportive evidence and rules and regulations that govern their use.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Patient Care, Professionalism, Medical Knowledge, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Systems-Based Practice
