2018 Midwest Facial Nerve Conference

Madison, WI US
August 10, 2018 to August 11, 2018

Practice Gaps and Needs

Clinicians, therapists, researchers, advance practice providers, nurses, and other health personnel currently have access to limited information regarding the diagnosis and management of facial paralysis, which makes them unclear of the criteria, timing, and best treatments available for patients.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for otolaryngologists, neurotologists, neurologists, facial plastic surgeons, oculoplastic surgeons, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, and advanced practice providers who are referred patients with facial nerve paralysis symptoms and are looking for new, successful, and innovative ways to treat these patients.

Elements of Competence

This CE activity has been designed to improve learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge, and systems-based practice.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the educational activity, the learners will be able to:

  1. Explain the current process for assessment of acute and chronic facial paralysis
  2. Identify surgical and therapeutic techniques used for management of chronic facial paralysis
  3. Outline the social impact of facial paralysis and personal ramifications for the patient
