Overview

Convenient and Comprehensive Neurology CME

The Electrodiagnostic Medicine and Neuromuscular Disorders – A Case-Based Approach continuing medical education program consists of 35 one-hour lectures that focus on a wide range of peripheral nerve diseases.

 

Key sections include focal syndromes, generalized disorders, motor neuron diseases, polyneuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, myopathies and special topics. This online CME course incorporates patient examples to illustrate typical and atypical presentations, and will help you to better:

  • Apply best practices for evaluation of patients presenting with actual or suspected neuromuscular complaints
  • Recognize classic, possible, and unlikely neuromuscular disorders according to clinical symptoms
  • Assess the need of laboratory tests, electrodiagnostic studies, imaging, and muscle and nerve biopsies to establish a diagnosis
  • Illustrate effective management of painful neuropathies
  • Outline strategies to deliver the best care possible to patients with neuromuscular disorders
