Description

Dystonia and spasticity are neurological disorders characterized by sustained muscle contractions that frequently cause twisting or repetitive movements and abnormal postures that may be painful. Botulinum toxin plays an essential role in the management of these disorders.

This full day workshop focuses on the practical and relevant use of botulinum toxin for neurological disorders utilizing both a didactic and case-demonstration approach for maximum impact and effective delivery of message.

Didactic topics will provide attendees with basic knowledge regarding the pharmacology of botulinum toxin and the treatment of currently approved indications, including cervical dystonia, blepharospasm, upper limb spasticity, and headache in adults. This is followed by a case demonstration session in the afternoon allowing attendees to see proper botulinum toxin preparation and injection technique being performed on live patients for desired outcome. This section will be captured with a video camera hooked on the big screen so that all attendees have the “close up view” without crowding the patient volunteer. The course ends with an interactive session on the “business considerations” in injecting botulinum toxins.

Our aim is to provide a comprehensive full day course that incorporates the scientific, practical and financial aspects of botulinum toxin injection.

Course Highlights

  • Faculty comprised of University of Michigan and Cleveland Clinic faculty who are experts in Movement Disorders and the administration of botulinum toxin injection
  • A balanced didactic presentation that incorporates all available botulinum toxins
  • Comprehensive presentation of current and future indications of botulinum toxin chemodenervation
  • Workshop demonstrations on live patients showcasing proper preparation and injection technique of botulinum toxin for approved neurological conditions, captured on the big screen for everyone’s full view
  • A practical session on the “Financial Considerations when Injecting Botulinum Toxin Injections” to provide the attendee with a complete course that incorporates the scientific, practical and “business” aspects of botulinum toxin injections
