The U- M Movement Disorders for the Non-Neurologist was held on Friday, September 14, 2018 at Laurel Manor in Livonia, Michigan. The program from the event is available here.
Designed for the busy clinician, this exciting full-day course covered the most common movement disorders seen in clinical practice, including tremor, dystonia, tics, chorea and parkinsonism,as well as gait disorders. Participants benefited from the expertise of our highly regarded movement disorders faculty, who will provided attendees with high-yield, practical information for recognition, diagnosis, assessment and management of these movement disorders. The afternoon session was dedicated to “bedside teaching” sessions with actual patients. During these sessions, faculty demonstrated movement disorders examination techniques and shared clinical pearls so that participants could be more confident in diagnosing various movement disorders.
Primary care physicians, geriatricians, psychiatrists, physiatrists, physicians in training, nurses, physician assistants, and rehabilitation specialists attended to learn more about clinical aspects of movement disorders.
Upon completion of this course, participants were able to describe how to evaluate, examine and treat patients who present with:
