Education to Improve Diagnosis of Neurological Symptoms, Rapidly Identify Emergencies and Optimize Outcomes
This special Harvard Medical School CME course provides updates, best practices, and new algorithms to diagnose neurological symptoms, quickly identify a neurological emergency, and take appropriate measures to optimize outcomes for high-risk patients.

This program provides state-of-the-art approaches for diagnosis and management of:
•  HIGH-FREQUENCY NEUROLOGICAL SYMPTOMS, including Headache, Back Pain, Dizziness, Delirium, General Weakness, Visual Changes
•  HIGH-RISK NEUROLOGICAL CONDITIONS, including Stroke, SDH, TIA, Concussion, TBI, SAH, Aneurysm, Spinal Cord Injury, Cauda Equina Syndrome, ICH, Meningitis

Every year there is a vast amount of practice-changing literature impacting the diagnosis of neurological conditions and next steps to take when you have identified a neurological emergency. These important updates include newer approaches to history, physical, and early management. 

Led by top clinical faculty at Harvard Medical School, this course ensures participants are current with these updates and prepared to:
• Better evaluate high-frequency neurological symptoms and high-risk neurological conditions
• Avoid misdiagnosis in neurological emergencies
• Quickly identify a neurological emergency and act in the first hours to optimize patient outcomes in an emergency, inpatient, and outpatient settings
• Optimize your use of CT/CTA (including what to order and how to read results)
• Optimize your use of MRI (including when to order and when NOT to order)
• Optimize patient safety
• Better understand and mitigate liability

This program is unique in that it:
• Consolidates best practices in the workup of common neurological complaints
• Provides tips that you can immediately put into practice
• Lays out algorithms for common complaints such as headache, dizziness, back pain, and visual problems
• Delivers guidance for stroke and cerebrovascular events, including first hours of the workup, the NIH Stroke Scale, tips for rapid neuroimaging and treatment (including new data on intra-arterial therapy), and best practices in risk management
• Includes dedicated case-based discussion sessions with audience participation, group discussion, and opportunities to learn from both your peers and the experts
• Is attended by a cross-specialty audience, leading to valuable opportunities for discussion—you can hear the perspectives of those in other specialties and other practice environments

You can tailor your learning experience to your specific interests, choosing from sessions designed for practitioners of:
• Emergency Medicine      
• Neurology (Outpatient and Inpatient)     
• Hospital Medicine
• Critical Care
• Internal Medicine
• Family Medicine
• Urgent Care

• Wake-up strokes: updates and new data
• Best practices for using the focused history and physical to determine which patients with headache or minor head injury require neuroimaging or further workup
• An algorithmic approach to evaluating back pain and guidance to spot the history and examination “red flags”
• Imaging for back and spine: when to image and what to look for
• The newest approaches to treat TIA and ICH
• Updates to diagnose and manage the comatose patient
• Evidence-based evaluation of altered mental status
• A new paradigm to diagnose dizziness
