Course Directors: William Tatum, D.O., Jeffrey Britton, M.D. and Sanjeet Grewal, M.D.
October 31 - November 2, 2022 - LIVESTREAM EST
The course focuses on a review of current clinical practice related to recognizing seizures and epilepsy in conjunction with adjunctive EEG testing and will include details about how technology can lead to incorrect diagnosis and treatment. An interactive and didactic format includes multimedia presentations and allows audience participation. The event will conclude with an opportunity for participants to ask questions on the cases discussed or present their own cases to the faculty panel. This course will also feature an American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) MOC Self-Assessment activity.
The program is intended for neurologists, physicians in internal medicine, family practice and general practice physicians, pediatricians, physician assistants, nurses and allied health professionals involved in the care of patients with seizures and epilepsy.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Discuss common errors when treating children and young adults with recurrent spells
- Describe the challenges associated with the diagnosis and management of seizures in patients with and without epilepsy
- Recognize the gaps in treatment that exist for adults with recurrent attacks when medication fails to provide control
- Discuss the impact of misdiagnoses in the treatment of epilepsy
- Compare case vignettes of patients with seizures and spells in real-life scenarios that appear during the course of routine clinic and hospital consultation
- Recognize common normal variations in EEG including the benign variants that may be misleading
- Identify when to use different techniques in recording and monitoring patients with seizures
- Recognize the impact of video-EEG monitoring in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with recurrent seizures and attacks that are resistant to medication
- Compare treatment strategies for refractory seizure disorders
