Description: Through an emphasis on case-based learning, this course will cover the clinician's approach to the diagnosis and initial management of functional movement disorders, functional non-epileptic seizures, and functional neuro-otologic disorders, including the approach to delivering the diagnosis in an assertive and sympathetic fashion and remove inappropriate medications to minimize iatrogenic harm. Therapeutic strategies will be discussed to a greater extent in Part II. This program complements Functional Neurologic Disorders II: Life Experiences and Management of Functional Disorders, but covers independent topics.
