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.
