The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 23.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.



This activity meets the criteria of the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine for 5.25 credits of Risk Management Study. Please check your individual state licensing board requirements before claiming these credits.



For the purpose of recertification, the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board and American Nurses Credentialing Center accept AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ issued by organizations accredited by the ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education). We would also suggest that learners check with their state licensing board to ensure they accept reciprocity with AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for re-licensure.



The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) states that AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ are acceptable for continuing medical education requirements for recertification. We would also suggest that learners check with their state licensing board to ensure they accept reciprocity with AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for re-licensure.



The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

This special program provides updates, best practices, and new algorithms to diagnose neurological symptoms, quickly identify a neurological emergency, and take appropriate measures to optimize outcomes for high-risk patients.



Led by top clinical faculty at Harvard Medical School, this program provides state-of-the-art approaches for diagnosis and management of:

HIGH-FREQUENCY NEUROLOGICAL SYMPTOMS, including Headache, Back Pain, Dizziness, Delirium, General Weakness, Visual Changes

HIGH-RISK NEUROLOGICAL CONDITIONS, including Stroke, SDH, TIA, Concussion, TBI, SAH, Aneurysm, Spinal Cord Injury, Cauda Equina Syndrome, ICH, Meningitis

NEUROLOGICAL SYMPTOMS IN SPECIAL POPULATIONS, including Pediatrics, Pregnancy, Postpartum



Every year there is a vast amount of practice-changing literature impacting diagnosis of neurological conditions and next steps to take when you have identified a neurological emergency. These important updates include newer approaches to the history, the physical, and early management. 

Among the highest-rated Harvard Medical School CME courses, this program ensures participants are current with these updates and prepared to:

Better evaluate high-frequency neurological symptoms and high-risk neurological conditions

Avoid misdiagnosis in neurological emergencies

Quickly identify a neurological emergency and act in the first hours to optimize patient outcomes in emergency, inpatient, and outpatient settings

Optimize your use of CT/CTA (including what to order and how to read results)

Optimize your use of MRI (including when to order and when NOT to order)

Improve risk management

Optimize patient safety

Better understand and mitigate liability

This program is unique in that it:

Consolidates best practices in the workup of common neurological complaints

Provides tips that you can immediately put into practice

Lays out algorithms for common complaints such as headache, dizziness, back pain, and visual problems

Delivers guidance for stroke and other cerebrovascular events, including first hours of workup, the NIH Stroke Scale, tips for rapid neuroimaging and treatment (including new data on intra-arterial therapy), and best practices in risk management

Includes dedicated case-based discussion sessions with audience participation, group discussion, and opportunities to learn from both your peers and the experts

Is attended by a cross-specialty audience, leading to valuable opportunities for discussion—you can hear the perspectives of those in other specialties and other practice environments


You can tailor your learning experience to your specific interests, choosing from sessions designed for practitioners of:

Emergency Medicine      

Neurology (Outpatient and Inpatient)     

Hospital Medicine

Critical Care

Internal Medicine

Family Medicine

Urgent Care

Educational highlights of the 2018 program include:

Best practices for using the focused history and physical to determine which patients with headache or minor head injury require neuroimaging or further workup

An algorithmic approach to evaluating back pain and guidance to spot the history and examination “red flags”

The newest approaches to treat stroke, TIA, and ICH (includes updates for DAWN and DEFUSE 3)

Updates to diagnose and manage the comatose patient

A new paradigm to diagnose dizziness

How to determine if it’s a stroke, neuritis or BPPV

Live demonstrations of diagnostic and therapeutic maneuvers in dizziness

Updates for acute management of spinal cord and cauda equina compression

Advances in the management of seizures

Advances in SDH management

Practical approaches to bedside neuro-ophthalmology

Updates in ICU management of TBI

Anticoagulants and antiplatelets: what to choose and when
