About this course

Get more out of your neuro-exam by simplifying your approach.

Every neurologist does the neuro-exam slightly different. We will discuss the basic components of the neuro-exam and how to interpret the results in clinical practice. We will further discuss how these results of the neuro-exam can be used to determine the neuro-anatomic localisation and if the neuro-exam can be used to determine prognosis.

Why do this course?
The large number of tests and reflexes can be tested, can make the neuro-exam a daunting task. We will discuss how to break down the neuro-exam in its basic components to make it more accessible for the general practitioner.

This webinar is part of a series called: Neurology for the clinical practitioner
