Overview

Comprehensive Online CME: Expert Advice and Guidance

This online CME course is designed to help non-neurologists stay abreast of the vast field of clinical neurology, better diagnose and manage their patients, and make appropriate referrals. The 60+ lectures in Neurology for Non-Neurologists cover both common and uncommon neurological disorders.

 

Speakers — chosen for their clinical expertise and experience educating non-neurologists — cover all areas of clinical neurology in practical, focused 30-minute continuing medical education lectures. You'll benefit from their expert advice, clinical guidance, and valuable take-home points, including:

  • Numbness and Spells. The key to assessing spells is to determine whether the spells are fast (seconds), suggesting seizures, or TIA or slow (minutes), which suggest migraine.
  • Gait Disorders. Testing gait is a very sensitive but not specific test of neurologic function.
  • Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders. The diagnostic criteria for essential tremor have been updated to include bilateral action tremor of the upper limbs of at least 3 years’ duration, with or without head, voice, or leg tremor.
  • Neuropathy: What You Should Know. Peripheral neuropathy is not one disease. Your first step in patient work up of a patient with suspected neuropathy is to characterize its phenotype so you can better tailor your management.
  • and many more…
