Comprehensive Updates and State-of-the-Art Practices for Outpatient and Inpatient Neurology

This program provides a comprehensive, evidence-based review of state-of-the-art practices for outpatient and inpatient neurology. Education covers the latest guidelines, clinical strategies, use of imaging and new diagnostic tools (including genetic tests), and recent advances for treatment for a wide array of neurological diseases.

Education is practical and focused on patient outcomes. Led by the foremost authorities in neurology and its subspecialties, the program provides tools to improve your care of patients with common, complex, and rare neurological conditions:

  • Epilepsy
  • Stroke
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Concussions
  • N-M Junction Disorders
  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Neuro-oncology
  • Headache
  • Spinal Cord Neurology
  • Dementia
  • Neuropathy
  • Movement Disorders
  • Coma
  • Neurologic Infections
  • Visual Disturbances
  • Autoimmune Neurology
  • Dizziness
  • Women’s Neurology
  • Neuro-ophthalmological Disorders

As updates are presented, they are paired with specific practice recommendations to help you incorporate them into practice for improved patient care and outcomes. This includes:

  • The new guidelines for epilepsy, stroke, neuromuscular disorders
  • Expert instruction for neuro-ophthalmology
  • Expanded options to diagnose and treat dementia
  • Improved management of headache
  • Best practices for treatment of neurologic infections and autoimmune disorders
  • Steps to ensure delivery of high-quality care in the emergency room and in outpatient settings
  • Techniques to effectively manage epilepsy and psychogenic non-epileptic seizures
  • Best practices in neuro-oncology
  • New insights and best practices for myelopathy and other spinal cord disorders
  • Expanded options to treat movement disorders
  • Previews of (and how to prepare for) future treatment options
  • State-of-the-art approaches to concussion and coma
  • Expanded options to diagnose and treat the causes of dizziness
  • Alcohol and the nervous system: what we now know
  • Use of genetic tests
  • Optimal use of imaging

Practice-Changing Education

Every year, there are a staggering number of critically important updates that need to be understood and incorporated into the practice of neurology to ensure optimal patient care. This special neurology update synthesizes this vast amount of information and presents it with efficiency and effectiveness to ensure that you are current with these updates and the best ways to incorporate them into practice.

Over the course of a week, you will be immersed in an impactful and inspiring neurology learning experience. The faculty, master clinicians and leaders in field of neurology, provide a learning experience that delivers:

  • Approaches that enable you to practice state-of-the-art neurology
  • Guidance for clinical reasoning
  • Case studies
  • Dedicated time for you to pose your specific questions to leaders in their respective fields of neurology and delve into how information presented in this course can be used in your specific clinical setting
  • Practical knowledge that you can “take home” and immediately apply to patient care

Year after year, attendees report they are inspired by the knowledge transfer and find the experience to be invaluable to their clinical practice, understanding of neurologic diseases, diagnostic skills and treatment outcomes.



Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Develop strategies to apply updated research and guidelines for common neurological conditions in their care of patients
  • Explain the principles of delivering neurological care in resource-constrained environments
  • Recognize immune-mediated neurological diseases and initiate appropriate therapy
  • Identify the most common causes of cognitive error in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases
  • Identify types of seizures and mimickers of seizures
  • Develop strategies to recognize and treat common and uncommon headache disorders
  • Review strategies to effectively prevent and manage stroke
  • Develop strategies for diagnosing and treating complicated neurologic problems in the outpatient and inpatient settings
  • Recognize and treat causes of dizziness
