Botulinum Toxin for Neurological Disorders Teaching Course
Despite increasingly widespread use of botulinum toxins (botulinum toxin for rehabilitation, neurological and other disorders) there is no recognized or regularly available training scheme in most AOS countries. Published US and European guidelines recommend formal training, but available training is haphazard. There is considerable literature available and some internet and CD/DVD teaching exists, but experience and feedback from previous meetings suggest that learners greatly value live courses.
At the conclusion of this activity, you should be able to accomplish the following:
- Explain how botulinum toxin works in relation to movement disorders.
- Describe the botulinum toxin therapy approaches in specific disorders as dystonia and spasticity in adults and children.
- Describe the techniques of botulinum toxin muscle injections from clinical localization to use of electromyography and ultrasound
- Identify the potential adverse events of botulinum toxin following injections of specific body regions or during multi-level injections
