The Practical Neurological Toolkit: High Yield Updates for the Office and the Ward is a one-day program to be hosted at the Westin Copley on April 18, 2020. The content is focused on common or hot topics in neuroscience, as well as identified clinical growth areas for the field. The target audience for the course included, referring providers, specifically PCPs, ED doctors, hospitalists, nurse practitioners, nurses and other clinicians that deal with neurological patients on a regular basis.
Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

- Review the etiology of slowly evolving (i.e. stuttering) deficits across a variety of pathologies including how to differentiate them from other etiologies.
- Differentiate common and uncommon conditions presenting with headache.
- Define effective inpatient approaches for seizures, ICU monitoring, intracerebral hemorrhage, and others.
- Compare and contrast the differential for weakness, spells, and memory loss.
- Learn about breakthroughs and exciting research on the delivery of neurologic care in all settings
