Neurology: Top Topic Updates for Primary Care

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION
Following this course, the participant should be able
to implement practical and cost effective methods
available in making a preliminary diagnosis; employ
effective history and physical exam techniques;
differentiate when they should treat certain disorders
versus when to refer for specialist care. This activity
is expected to result in improved competence in
making an appropriate diagnosis and providing
effective treatment and referral or follow-up care with
the overall goal of improving patient outcomes.
The emphasis will be on aligning physician behavior
with current guidelines and evidence-based medicine,
as indicated within each topic’s specific objectives,
with a focus on diagnosis, treatment and when to
refer. Since the specialty of Neurology is one that
demands great clinical acumen, this course was
designed as a review and update for all practitioners
at the level of a practicing physician in an effort to
improve their skills in making appropriate clinical
decisions and diagnoses without excessive testing.
