Get On-line CME Education on Movement Disorders

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Get On-line CME Education on Movement Disorders. On this CME webcast, we are going to show you how to recognize common movement disorders based on your own observation of patients, and we’ll also cover an overview of how to manage common movement disorders. We’re going to divide them into those disorders that make patients move too slow and those that make patients move too fast. Joining our moderator in the studio, to tell us about hypokinetic movement disorders, is Assistant Professor of Neurology, Dr. Ariane Park. And then to cover hyperkinetic movement disorders, Assistant Professor of Neurology, Dr. Barbara Changizi.

CME Webcast Provides Stroke Update

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 CME Webcast Provides Stroke Update. The management of stroke has changed dramatically from a condition that we really couldn’t do anything about to an often treatable condition that requires just as emergent response from physicians as an ST segment elevation MI. On this CME webcast, to tell us about the state of the art of acute stroke management are two of Ohio State University’s stroke experts. First, to tell us about the medical management of stroke, we have Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Dr. Michel Torbey. And then in the studio, to tell us about advances in the surgical treatment of stroke, is Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, Dr. Shahid Nimjee.

Learn about Oncologic Emergencies on Webcast

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Learn about Oncologic Emergencies on Webcast. In the 70 years since Goodman and Gilman gave that first dose of nitrogen mustard chemotherapy, we have come a long, long way in oncologic treatment. Today, we can cure cancers that even 10 years ago were considered fatal. But cancers still make our patients incredibly ill and they still cause our patients to die. On this CME webcast, we’re going to discuss some of the emergencies that cancer creates in our patients, how to recognize them, and how to treat them. Joining Dr. Jim Allen, in the studio, we’re delighted to welcome today’s guests. First, we have Dr. Luca Delatore who is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine from the Ohio State University and is the Medical Director of the James Cancer Hospital Emergency Department. Second, we have Dr. Joseph Flynn. For the past 15 years, Dr. Flynn has been an Associate Professor of Internal Medicine in the OSU Division of Hematology and he has just been appointed as the Physician in Chief and Executive Director of Norton Cancer Institute at the Norton Health System in Kentucky.

New Treatments for Brain Tumors

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 New Treatments for Brain Tumors. Today, neurosurgeons can localize brain tumors to within millimeters of brain structures allowing today’s surgeons to use microsurgical techniques that many earlier surgeons could not have even dreamed of. On this CME webcast, we’re going to show you some of the techniques that now allow surgeons to operate on patients who 20 years ago would have been deemed inoperable. Joining our moderator, Dr. Jim Allen, in the studio is Dr. Brad Elder, an Associate Professor of Neurosurgery and the Director of neurosurgical oncology at the Ohio State University and Dr. Daniel Prevedello will be joining us by video. Dr. Prevedello is also an Associate Professor of Neurosurgery, and is the director of the minimally invasive cranial surgery program at Ohio State.
