The California Congress of Clinical Neurology is designed to provide practicing neurologists with the most up-to-date information for the diagnosis and management of the patient with neurologic conditions. Each section is built around a specific clinical topic and is presented by experts who provide practical information for evaluation and treatment of patients with neurological conditions.
This meeting is designed primarily for practicing neurologists. Other health care providers including fellows, residents, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, social workers, doctors of pharmacy and neuropsychologists who work in patient care may benefit.
Statement of Educational Need
To be more capable of practice at the level of the standard of care, neurologists need a better understanding of the pathophysiology of movement disorders, dementia, stroke, epilepsy, headache, MS/neuroimmunology and neuromuscular conditions. They also need improved diagnostic evaluation, treatment and management strategies in addition to novel approaches in monitoring patients with these conditions. This educational activity is designed to improve understanding of and use of current clinical practice guidelines and recent research findings in the participant’s practices.
After completing this CME activity, learners should be able to:
- Identify novel laboratory tests for use in the diagnosis of cognitive and movement disorders.
- Discuss emerging therapies for Alzheimer’s disease.
- Explain strategies for management of cognitive and psychiatric problems in Parkinson’s disease.
- Outline appropriate use of deep brain stimulation in early-stage Parkinson’s disease.
- Describe new medications for treating headache according to current clinical practice guidelines.
- Discuss new approaches and medications for treating patients with epilepsy.
- Describe the relationship between Epstein-Barr virus and multiple sclerosis.
- Explain how to use advanced diagnostics for stroke.
