Neurology for the Non-Neurologist 2019
This is a continuing education activity event paneled by providers from the Department of Neurology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison. It is a fast-paced, day-long event in which experts representing all subspecialties of neurology will present pearls of wisdom to guide primary care and internal medicine physicians and APPs in tackling commonly encountered neurologic problems. Discussions will include how to determine signs and symptoms of neurological disease, localize “the lesion,” order the proper tests, initiate treatment and refer to the neurologist, when necessary.
The course is an opportunity to learn or review when and why to order an EMG or EEG, differentiate peripheral from central nervous system pathology, distinguish familial tremor from Parkinson’s disease, address headache syndromes, prevent major stroke, recognize early multiple sclerosis and more. This is an opportunity to meet your Wisconsin experts, put a face to the name, and ask questions in an informal collegial setting. It is a guarantee that you will take something back to the clinic that will help you with patient care. We look forward to meeting you.
