We are pleased to offer the MDS-PAS Virtual School on Neuromodulation for Movement Disorders this year in an abbreviated format but emphasizing complex case discussion and faculty opinions on challenging clinical situations, still encompassing many aspects of Deep Brain Stimulation-DBS treatment for Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, and tremor.
Join us on November 6, 2020 at 8:00 AM Pacific Time and learn the successful application of neuromodulation beginning with selection of surgical candidates, establishing surgical strategies for lead implantation (including imaging and neurophysiology recordings), and guidelines for optimization of deep brain stimulation programming.
- The course will have four sections, mirroring the clinical course of the patient: 1) DBS patient assessment and target selection, 2) surgical methods, 3) initial and subsequent DBS programing, and 4) surgical complications.
- Case presentations by faculty, with a brief panel discussion and an opportunity for audience members to ask questions.
- Four hours of interactive education with features such as Q&A and video sharing to enhance your experience.
Movement disorder specialists, neurologists with interest in movement disorders, functional neurosurgeons, nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists and other health-allied personnel, and trainees who have interest in deep brain stimulation surgery and want to strengthen their knowledge in this field.
- Understand basic tenants of neurostimulation for movement disorders, including putative mechanisms of action, surgical techniques, inter/intra-operative test stimulation and microelectrode recording
- Evaluate the selection criteria for the successful referral of movement disorder patients DBS
- Assess outcomes after DBS in movement disorder patients and potential complications
- Apply core concepts of DBS programming for integration into long-term care plans in movement disorder patients
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Credit Designation Statement:
The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society designates this activity for a maximum of 5.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation.
Participants must complete an evaluation for each session they attend to receive continuing medical education credit. Your chosen session(s) must be attended in their entirety. Partial credit for individual sessions is not available.
Content Validity Statement:
All recommendations involving clinical medicine in MDS activities are based on evidence that is accepted within the profession of medicine as adequate justification for their indications and contraindications in the case of patients. All scientific research referred to, reported or used in CME in support or justification of a patient care recommendations conforms to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis. Activities that promote recommendations, treatment or manners of practicing medicine not within the definition of CME or are knowing to have risks or dangers that outweigh the benefits or are knowing to be ineffective in the treatment of patients do not constitute valid CME.
Disclosure of Financial Relationships:
All individuals in control of content for this webinar are required to disclose all relevant financial relationships with commercial interests as defined by the ACCME.
