6th Annual UCLA Review of Clinical Neurology
Activity Details
Activity Name: 6th Annual UCLA Review of Clinical Neurology
Needs Assessment:

The UCLA Review of Clinical Neurology is designed to provide a comprehensive and practical review for neurologists who wish to strengthen their proficiency in diagnosing and treating core disease states in neurology. The course is organized to provide attendees with a review of clinical neurology based on major disease topics. Each neurological core topic will be organized to provide a summary of the clinical spectrum of the disorders, pathophysiology, etiology, diagnostic techniques and management options. Lectures will utilize cases and audience response system (ARS) to help the participants appraise their knowledge and actively engage them in the learning process. Each lecture will include a discussion of three recent advancements made in the last year. Participants will be able to effectively use this educational symposium to enhance their clinical knowledge of key neurologic disorders, expand their horizons on recent discoveries about disease pathology, appreciate new diagnostic tools and think critically about management options. This activity can be used to satisfy competency requirements for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) required by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) and ABPN-Self Assessment.

Course Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Utilize most current evidence-based practices to diagnose and manage major disease states in neurology, including multiple sclerosis, dementia, vertigo, headaches, epilepsy, CNS infections, movement disorders, sleep disorders, disorders due to chronic alcohol exposure, neuromuscular diseases, neurootology, cerebrovascular disease and neuroophthalmology
  • Use key neurologic signs and symptoms to explore underlying neurologic processes and possible localization of underlying disorders
  • Order appropriate neurologic testing including sleep studies, neurologic imaging, and neurophysiological assessments
  • Identify the most current and appropriate therapeutic strategies for common neurologic disorders and complaints
  • Apply ethical principles to the care of patients with complex and challenging neurological disorders
  • Examine the role of toxins and chronic alcohol exposure in neurologic impairments
  • Recognize psychiatric illness in general neurology practice and appreciate the basic principles of psychopharmacology in addressing these patients
  • Formulate an approach to patients with challenging and unusual neurologic presentations
  • Discuss the potential role for cannabis and cannabinoid compounds in neurologic disease
