2nd Annual Current and Emerging Uses of Botulinum Toxins in Neurology and Rehabilitation: A Practical Skills Workshop
Saturday, June 9, 2012
The Townsend Hotel
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. PLEASE REGISTER ON-SITE.
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.
- 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
- 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
Practicing neurologists, practicing physiatrists, fellows, residents, physician assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners who see patients with dystonia or spasticity.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe differences in onset, duration of effect, potential side effects
and mechanism of action between the various formulations of botulinum
- Recognize the clinical presentation and manifestations of craniofacial
dystonias, cervical dystonia, and spasticity
- Describe the injection technique with botulinum toxin for treating the
various dystonias, spasticity, and headache
- Describe the various dosages needed for each disorder with each of the
different types of botulinum toxin.
- Discuss the patient and provider financial considerations when performing botulinum toxin injections
