Event Overview
Welcome message:

This special two-and-a-half-day program provides state-of-the-art approaches and tools to quickly and effectively determine which cases are (and are not) emergencies, and what to do for those that are. Coverage includes:


The right questions to ask and the right features to look for to rapidly identify and treat high-risk patients

State-of-the-art algorithms to rapidly evaluate neurological complaints

Guidance to act in the first hours

Best practices for neuroimaging and treatment

Avoid misdiagnosis

NEW IN 2016: Customize Your Learning Experience


A special feature of the 2016 program is the opportunity to choose from sessions pertaining to your clinical setting and practice needs. Whether you work primarily in inpatient or outpatient environments, you will receive critical updates and practical knowledge to incorporate into your particular practice with patients complaining of neurological distress.


The 2016 program also introduces a special optional, half-day workshop: Risk Management: How to Minimize Your Liability. This optional 3-hour workshop provides clinicians who diagnose and treat neurological emergencies with:


Guidance from a malpractice attorney for liability prevention and mitigation

Dos and don’ts for documenting your work

The most effective ways to communicate within the team, including both consulting others and performing consults

Hard-learned lessons: what others’ mistakes teach us

A review of real, closed malpractice cases

Why Should You Attend?


This course is designed to elevate the care of patients with acute neurological diagnoses. Because various time-dependent therapies exist, early diagnosis is important; however, in-person neurological consultation and real-time MRI are often unavailable in community settings. Although there are other courses in emergency medicine and on outpatient neurology, none focus exclusively on this area of intersection – acute neurological emergencies. We believe that our course is unique in its scope, and this year we have increased the duration to three days based on feedback from past participants. We have designated large blocks of time for Q&A, which past course participants have requested and utilized. Many sessions focus on Risk Management issues such as headache and avoiding misdiagnosis of patients presenting with back pain.


Our goal is to improve the knowledge of frontline clinicians so that they are better equipped to make an accurate diagnosis, better understand the uses and limitations of neuroimaging tests, and improve overall care to this group of patients. We have also increased content to be more relevant to community neurologists caring for patients with acute neurological problems.
