This continuing medical education course will enhance the clinical practice of physicians who manage patients with neuromuscular symptoms and disorders. The comprehensive review focuses on basic and advanced electrodiagnostic techniques used in the evaluation of patients with actual or suspected neuromuscular disease.
The groups of disorders covered include:
Motor neuron diseases
Peripheral neuropathies (focal and generalized)
Neuromuscular junction disorders
Lectures cover the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders as well as when to order specific laboratory and genetic tests and muscle and nerve biopsies. For each of the common and complex disorders presented, authoritative and clinically active specialists provide the benefit of their own experience and expertise. Many of the speakers have provided advice to their own professional organizations and key medical journals, and have taught specialists and generalists alike.
This activity is primarily intended for Neurologists, Physiatrists (Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation doctors), Neurology residents and fellows, and PM&R residents and fellows.
Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
Perform a history and examination in order to evaluate patients presenting with actual or suspected neuromuscular complaints
Recognize classic, possible, and unlikely neuromuscular disorders according to clinical symptoms
Apply current literature on electrodiagnostic medicine and neuromuscular disorders to the evaluation and management of patients
Analyze whether laboratory tests, electrodiagnostic studies, imaging, and muscle and nerve biopsies are necessary or unnecessary for diagnosis
Assess relevant treatment options
Develop improved competence in providing optimal care to the neuromuscular patient
Predict and manage patient expectations regarding treatment, outcomes, rehabilitation, and prognosis
