Critical Care EEG Monitoring   8:00 a.m.–9:30 a.m.  •  CME: 1.5 Credits  Program Director: Aatif Husain, MD, Durham, NC This course will review important aspects of continuous EEG (cEEG) monitoring in critically ill patients. This will include a review of clinical indications as well as practical considerations for implementation of cEEG. Interpretation of cEEG in the critically ill presents unique challenges compared to routine EEG, so faculty will explain how to identify seizures and differentiate from other periodic and rhythmic patterns as well as artifacts. Quantitative EEG analysis is being increasingly used for detection of seizures and other acute changes but is relatively new to many neurologists, so faculty will review basic QEEG concepts and clinical use in critically ill patients. Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to recognize appropriate patients who may benefit from cEEG monitoring; appreciate the nuanced interpretation of cEEG data and differentiate artifacts from seizures and other cerebral activity; and recognize the value and limitations of quantitative analysis of cEEG and apply this to their practice settings. 8:00 a.m.–8:05 a.m. Introduction Aatif Husain, MD, Durham, NC 8:05 a.m.–8:35 a.m.

Practice Management II: Teleneurology: What You Need to Know   10:00 a.m.–11:30 a.m.  •  CME: 1.5 Credit  Program Director: Brad Klein, MD, MBA, FAAN, Willow Grove, PA Patients and health systems are increasingly demanding care through telemedicine. While it has become mainstream in hospitals and health systems, there remain many opportunities for private practicing neurologists to also leverage telemedicine and contribute to patient access, convenience, and continuity of care. This course will provide a structured approach towards the practical incorporation of remote care into a neurology practice. Through case studies and examples, we will cover reimbursement/financial models, implementation, client engagement, insurance, regulations, direct to consumer models, hospital contracting, and medicolegal concerns. Upon completion, participants should be able to identify what remote care paradigms are appropriate for specific types of care and what technical, regulatory, and legal standards are required as well the concerns and limitations for the appropriate practice of remote care in neurology. 10:00 a.m.–10:45 a.m. What You Need to Know About Remote Care Eric Anderson, MD, PhD, Gulport, FL 10:45 a.m.–11:15 a.m. A Step-by-Step Guide to Implementing Teleneurology in a Private-Practice Setting David Evans, MBA, Dallas, TX 11:15 a.m.–11:30 a.m. Questions and Answers Faculty

Multiple Sclerosis Therapy: Overview: Clinical Advances   10:00 a.m.–11:30 a.m.  •  CME: 1.5 Credits  Program Director: Scott Newsome, DO, FAAN, Baltimore, MD It is extremely important for clinicians treating MS to enhance their knowledge base about the changing landscape of the MS disease-modifying therapies (DMTs). Making treatment decisions for an individual MS patient is a daunting task and the individualized patient benefit-risk assessment becomes increasingly difficult as new therapies emerge. Furthermore, if these therapies become available, clinicians need to have a full understanding of their benefit-risk profiles. Faculty will review the efficacy and safety profiles of current and late-stage emerging MS DMTs. It is equally challenging to define what constitutes optimal and suboptimal response to DMTs for an individual patient. Moreover, it is critical for clinicians to be able to recognize short-term clinical and paraclinical factors that may help identify patients at high risk for long-term disability. Faculty will review key considerations in MS clinical practice to address the above challenges in both didactic and case-based formats. Participants should feel more confident in prescribing and monitoring multiple sclerosis (MS) disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) as it relates to their efficacy and safety profiles, and develop a better understanding of key considerations in clinical practice; become familiar with late-stage DMTs that have a strong potential of getting approved for use in MS; and be able to recognize what factors put an MS patient at risk for long-term disability and when to consider switching therapies.

Neuroscience in the Clinic: Stress and Neurologic Diseases— What Is It, and What Is the Provider To Do?   1:00 p.m.–2:30 p.m.  •  CME: 1.5 Credits  Program Directors: R  iley Bove, MD, San Francisco, CA Graham Huesmann, MD, PhD, Urbana, IL Stress is everywhere in modern life. Stressors—acute and chronic, emotional, physical or social—influence our brain from birth until the end of life. Much is known about the effects of stress on brain programming during development, and about the adverse effects of chronic stress on neurologic health and disease. However, there are major gaps in our understanding of what exactly stress does to brain functions. This knowledge is a prerequisite to devising interventions and therapies. This session will present clinical cases, demonstrating stress-related exacerbation of a broad range of neurologic conditions. It will continue with a state-of the art discussion of the mechanisms by which the diverse stresses that patients and clinicians encounter affect cognitive and emotional brain functions throughout life. A variety of clinically relevant strategies to mitigate and hopefully prevent the profound negative effects stress has on the brain will be highlighted. Participants should be able to recognize clinical manifestations of stress in patients with or without neurologic diseases; identify types of stressors (including modern life stress), and how to define and measure them; understand how stress influences brain functions; and comprehend the multiple modalities and approaches available to reduce stress. 1:00 p.m.–1:30 p.m. Talk TBD Faculty 1:30 p.m.–2:00 p.m.

In this session, we will travel from the bench to the bedside and beyond, exploring the neurobiology underlying opioid addiction and its relation to chronic pain, and how developments in clinical research are informing our approach to the treatment of these intertwined disorders. We will conclude by looking to the future…the treatments coming down the pipeline, and the recent changes in governmental policy intended to accelerate progress. Participants will become familiar with: central nervous system mechanisms underlying addiction and chronic pain, the state of the evidence on how best to manage these disorders, new treatment strategies under development, and recent changes in public policy which effect neurologists and their patients with chronic pain. 1:00 p.m.–1:05 p.m. Introduction Jessica Robinson-Papp, MD, FAAN, New York, NY 1:05 p.m.–1:15 p.m.

Leadership Challenges in Practice   1:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m.  •  CME: 3.75  Program Director: Brad Klein, MD, MBA, FAAN, Willow Grove, PA Practitioners have limited time to work smarter and learn subtle, yet effective means to improve practice revenues while also improving their work environment and their personal well-being. This program will discuss several critical leadership skills, including understanding and implementing varying communication approaches to change internally within an organization or externally with a hospital, health care system, or insurer. The course will also discuss addressing internal practice challenges, such efficiency and workflow strategies. In addition, the course will discuss practical approaches to improve personal growth, professional fulfillment, and physician well-being while still improving the bottom line. Upon completion, participants should have a better understanding of how strong leadership skills can impact the success of a practice internally and externally, mitigate the economic and regulatory demands of a practicing neurologist, and ensure physicians can continue to successfully provide high-quality and rewarding care in any practice setting.
