Join the CVE in Cairns as we bring together three well respected specialists to talk all things Neurology! General practitioners can feel uncomfortable and even overwhelmed by the idea of having to assess patients with suspected neurological disease. It is often wrongly assumed that these patients can only be evaluated by neurology specialists who have access to advanced diagnostic imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography.
During this course you will however learn that many neurology patients can perfectly be managed in first opinion practice without the need for advanced and expensive diagnostics.
Clinically relevant topics will be discussed, including tips and tricks on how to get more from your neuro-exam, how to obtain a reliable list of differential diagnoses, the role of further diagnostics, seizures, other brain disorders, neurological emergencies and spinal disorders.
