It is estimated that 1 billion people worldwide are affected by neurological disease and disorders, making it the leading cause of disability in the world. Since neurological diseases are so prevalent, it is important that neurologists discuss and construct a framework for identifying and describing individuals with neurological impairment.
The upcoming Toronto Neurology Update provides the opportunity to compare various cases of neurological deficiencies to better evaluate and diagnose patients in their earliest stages. Over the 2-day conference participants will acquire a range of new evaluation skills and strategies for assessing patients with common neurological presentations. Hot topics for 2018 include:
- Evaluation of patients with TIA and stroke, and stroke prophylaxis
- Approach to evaluation of patients with headaches, and management of chronic headaches
- Parkinson’s disease – therapeutic options and managing complications
- Evaluating and treating patients with dementia
- Management of patients with seizures
- Manage patients with Parkinson’s Disease
- Manage patients with multiple sclerosis
After attending the update, participants will develop a better understanding of treatment options and how to manage complications.
The 2018 Toronto Neurology Update will be held on October 26-27, at the University of Toronto Conference Centre. Review the conference agenda for a complete list of speakers, workshops and presentations. The update has a special focus on expanding the knowledge of non-neurologists, as such, general practitioners, internists, psychiatrists, geriatricians and emergency physicians are encouraged to attend.
