How many CME/CE credits can be earned by attending New York Neurosurgery Update: A One Day Symposium online CME course?

The NYU Grossman School of Medicine assigns this online CME activity for a maximum of 7.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians will be able to earn only the credit equivalent with the extent of their participation in the activity.

What is the significance of the New York Neurosurgery Update: A One Day Symposium online CME course?

Course Description:
The spectrum of neurosurgery encompasses cranial, spinal, and peripheral nerve disorders related to vascular disease, brain tumors, pain, movement and behavioral disorders, epilepsy, and trauma. Clinical challenges in both adults and children are governed by neurosurgeons together with partners in neurology, oncology, radiation oncology, otolaryngology, radiology, pathology, orthopedic surgery, rehabilitation medicine, and neuroscience. This virtual one-day course will discuss important clinical problems for which there may be clinical equipoise on available options, or for which prevailing science does not provide solutions based on high-level medical evidence.

What are the objectives of the New York Neurosurgery Update: A One Day Symposium online CME course?

Course Objectives:
At the conclusion of this online CME activity, clinicians should be able to:
• Assess the purposes of resection, radiosurgery, laser ablation, and drug-based strategies for different brain tumors and make appropriate treatment decisions for their patients
• Examine the roles and develop treatment algorithms involving surgical intervention, diagnostic anesthetic blocks, neuromodulation, spinal instrumentation, and fixation for degenerative and oncologic diseases of the spine
• Determine the roles for surgical resection, laser ablation, medical management, and neuromodulation in the management of the epileptic disorder
• Picture how primary and adjuvant radiosurgery can be used to control tumors and other brain disorders and avoid new neurological deficits
• Explain how patient selection and medical evidence helps decision-making for neurovascular disorders
• Outline treatment opportunities for hydrocephalus, depending on the etiology and patient age
• Elaborate decision-making algorithms for diagnosis and management of brain trauma and elevated intracranial pressure
• Review advances in telemedicine that can be employed to assess patients, especially during the pandemic
