This course series, provided as 10 separate modules, addresses issues such as identifying patients who may or may not benefit from the treatment, recognizing the titration and the monitoring of clinical response, recognizing the main complications and managing them, and comparing these treatments with conventional oral dopaminergic therapies, as well as against each other.
- Online Journal CME
Online Journal CME courses derive from specially selected articles from the monthly Movement Disorders Journal. Articles are paired with questions that when answered correctly, give the participant CME credit. Journal CME courses are added often and removed after 1 year so as to maintain the accuracy and relevancy of topics covered. CME journal articles are posted within 45 days of journal publication.
