UPMC Hamot 2021 Neuroscience Conference
Early diagnosis and treatment of stroke and other neurologic disorders can have a profound impact on patient outcomes and mortality. The diagnosis, management, treatment, and rehabilitation of diseases of the brain and spine is rapidly changing. It is vital that primary care practitioners, nurses, therapists, and other advanced practice providers maintain an awareness of the differential diagnoses, as well as new and emerging treatment options for these.
This annual activity will focus on the neurosciences, including stroke and other disorders of the brain, as well as foster networking and collaboration among clinical disciplines within the region. Both current and future treatment options will be addressed, along with management issues and prevention of possible complications. Case presentations will complement didactic presentations.
Primary care physicians, internists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants; physical, occupational, and speech therapists; and other advanced practice providers will benefit from attendance at this activity.
