Target Audience and Needs
Pediatric neurologists, other neurological specialists, residents, fellows, medical students, and other healthcare professionals need to be regularly updated on clinical best practices and advances in child and adolescent neurology. The aim of this series is to expand medical knowledge to improve clinical practice, the quality of care, and patient outcomes.
Educational methods will include lectures.
At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:
- Discuss the increasing role of immune mechanisms in the diagnosis and management of autoimmune encephalitis and related disorders affecting children and adolescents.
- Recognize the increasing role of genetic conditions in the diagnosis and treatment of childhood epileptic states.
- Explain the important role of early diagnosis in the treatment of children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and the increasing role of next-generation genetics in the diagnosis and neurobiological basis of ASDs.
- Identify the various neurological conditions that mimic a childhood stroke-like syndrome and apply appropriate diagnostic tools (such as neuroimaging) that do not delay management of such conditions (e.g., encephalitis, migraine conditions, seizure disorders).
Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
