A significant demographic trend has emerged in recent years: people are living longer and as a result, primary care physicians are seeing increasingly more aging patients with a variety of degenerative spine and brain disorders, tumors, and cerebrovascular diseases.
This activity was developed for primary care physicians who treat neurological disorders in an aging population, and is also open to nursing staff and allied health professionals.
At the conclusion of this initiative, participants will do the following: · Improve their ability to diagnose and manage a range of neurological conditions including neuropathy headache, and back pain · Make appropriate referrals for patients requiring work-up and treatment by a neurologist or neurosurgeon · Improve the continuity of care of patients who are receiving or have received care for a neurological condition by a specialist
