Event Details

Purpose and Target Audience

The annual Contemporary Clinical Neurology Symposium offered by the Department of Neurology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center is designed to provide practicing neurologists with the most up-to-date information for the diagnosis and management of the patient with neurologic conditions. Each day is built around a specific clinical topic presented by VUMC faculty.

Vanderbilt's Contemporary Clinical Neurology Symposium is designed primarily for practicing neurologists. Other neurology health care providers including fellows, residents, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners also benefit. Over the past 40 years, neurologists from the Southeast and Eastern seaboard have attended this symposium.

 

CME Credit Designation

Vanderbilt University Medical Center is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Vanderbilt University Medical Center designates this live activity for a maximum of 16.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

 

Self-Assessments and PIP

In addition to the Sympsoium, (3) Self-Assessments and a PIP have been approved by the American Board of Psychiatry (ABPN) as required elements for Maintenance of Certification (MOC). Each SA is approved for 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. PIP is approved for 20.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Only registered sympsosium attendees may participate in these activities.

 

Statement of Educational Need

To be more capable of practice at the level of the standard of care, neurologists need a better understanding of the pathophysiology of stroke and headache, movement disorders, and epilepsy. They also need improved evaluation and management strategies in addition to novel approaches in monitoring patients with stroke and headache, movement disorders, and epilepsy. 

 

Learning Objectives

After participating in this CME activity, participants should be able to describe and discuss:

  • Improved evaluation and diagnosis of stroke and headache, movement disorders, and epilepsy.
  • Evidence-based management strategies for stroke and headache, movement disorders, and epilepsy.
  • Implications of federal policy changes related to the Affordable Care Act and the practice of neurology. Impact of the most recent administrative changes directed at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on the practice of neurology.

 

Faculty Disclosure

It is the policy of Vanderbilt University Medical Center to require disclosure of financial relationships from individuals in a position to control the content of a CME activity; to identify and resolve conflicts of interest related to those relationships; and to make disclosure information available to the audience prior to the CME activity.
