Description: This is part two of a basic overview of movement disorders for the non-specialist.The field of movement disorders is highly reliant upon visual recognition of the phenomenology of abnormal movements, followed by differential diagnosis of potential underlying etiologies. Faculty will aim to help clinicians characterize various abnormal movements and provide an overview of common and uncommon etiologies of these movements. Presenters will use video examples, provide pointers that help in differential diagnosis in clinical practice, and review directed investigations for patients presenting with various movement disorders. Faculty will also briefly discuss appropriate treatment. This program complements Movement Disorders for the General Neurologist I: New Concepts in the Diagnosis and Management of Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders for the General Neurologist III: Chorea, Dystonia, Myoclonus, Stereotypies, and Tics, but covers independent topics.
