C117 - Tourette Syndrome: Assessment and Management

Event Time: Monday May 6, 2019 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Movement Disorders
Director(s): Tamara Pringsheim MD, FAAN
Description: Tics disorders are a common reason for out-patient consultation for both child and adult neurologists. The assessment and management of people with tics disorders can be complex, due to the frequent presence of comorbid psychiatric disorders, and the availability of behavioral therapies, pharmacological treatments and deep brain stimulation as potential treatments. Using clinical cases and audience participation, faculty will guide attendees on the comprehensive evaluation of people with tics, the evidence to support the use of behavioral therapies, pharmacological treatments and deep brain stimulation, and how to prescribe these interventions in clinical practice.
Completion Message: Participants should develop knowledge and skills in the comprehensive evaluation of people with tics, including assessment for common psychiatric comorbid disorders. Participants should become familiar with the evidence-based treatment of tics, including the use of behavioral therapies, medication, and deep brain stimulation and how to appropriately prescribe and monitor these treatments.
