CURRENT CONCEPTS IN ELECTRODIAGNOSIS, NEUROLOGY/RHEUMATOLOGY INTERFACE, AND NEUROMUSCULAR MEDICINE Sponsored by Hospital for Special Surgery Office of Continuing Medical Education & Department of Neurology
Neurology is an evolving discipline and there is limited information available on new treatments for neuromuscular disease. This symposium will focus on broadening knowledge and competence of clinicians in this field by covering available evidence-based information on topics on which there is limited information such as electrodiagnostics techniques, specialized studies and the latest advances in neuromuscular medicine, as well as various rheumatological conditions, such as lupus and myopathy.
At the conclusion of the activity, participants will be able to accurately interpret clinical and electrophysiological data; diagnose and treat patients with neuromuscular diseases; perform safe and accurate electrodiagnostic studies; become familiar with evaluation and management of neurological complications during the perioperative process, including Parkinson’s disease; and evaluate, diagnose and manage myopathy, polymyositis, myositis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and learn new updates on current clinical trials available for treatment of ALS.
Participants will learn to manage an efficient neuromuscular medical practice, and become more proficient in the use of immunological and neuroimaging testing available for diagnosis and management of a number of rheumatological/immunology disorders.
