Expand Your Knowledge

This continuing medical education course will enhance the clinical practice of physicians who manage patients with neuromuscular symptoms and disorders. The comprehensive review focuses on basic and advanced electrodiagnostic techniques used in the evaluation of patients with actual or suspected neuromuscular disease.

The groups of disorders covered include:

  • Motor neuron diseases
  • Peripheral neuropathies (focal and generalized)
  • Neuromuscular junction disorders
  • Myopathies

Lectures cover the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders as well as when to order specific laboratory and genetic tests and muscle and nerve biopsies. For each of the common and complex disorders presented, authoritative and clinically active specialists provide the benefit of their own experience and expertise. Many of the speakers have provided advice to their own professional organizations and key medical journals, and have taught specialists and generalists alike.

Enhance your clinical practice

A clinically based update, this learn-at-your-own-pace course in electrodiagnostic medicine and neuromuscular disorders provides a maximum of 33.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™. Available online or on disk, it provides access to unbiased, evidence-based content and case-based reviews so you can expand your knowledge and incorporate the latest guidelines into your practice.
