Neurology for the Non-Neurologist 2020 (Virtual Conference, Central Time)
This is a virtual continuing education activity event presented 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.
This course is an opportunity to learn more about basic stroke and epilepsy care, pediatric headache, neuropsychology, and palliative medicine. This is an opportunity to meet your Wisconsin experts, put a face to the name, and ask questions in an informal collegial setting. We look forward to meeting you!
Topics will include:
- Palliative Care
- Multiple Sclerosis
