Neurology for the Non-Neurologist Conference

Parents ​and ​Primary ​caretakers ​often ​approach ​general ​practitioners ​with ​neurological ​concerns, ​often ​accompanied ​by ​much ​anxiety ​and ​trepidation. ​ ​ ​When ​they ​leave ​their ​pediatrician’s ​office ​or ​emergency ​room ​with ​little ​to ​no ​recommendations, ​and ​have ​to ​wait ​for ​several ​weeks ​- ​months ​to ​attain ​answers, ​their ​anxiety ​is ​heightened, ​often ​leading ​them ​to ​search ​for ​answers ​online ​or ​from ​family ​and ​friends ​that ​may ​not ​be ​of ​sound ​medical ​advise ​and ​may ​cause ​more ​harm. ​ ​

To ​benefit ​our ​community, ​we ​offer ​this ​educational ​conference ​to ​general ​practitioners ​on ​common ​neurological ​concerns ​they ​may ​be ​approached ​with, ​and ​provide ​them ​with ​the ​tools ​and ​recommendations ​to ​help ​their ​families. ​ ​Often ​times, ​our ​community ​practitioners ​inform ​us ​when ​it ​comes ​to ​neurological ​complaints, ​they ​have ​little ​background/training ​to ​provide ​initial ​work-up ​or ​recommendations; ​hence, ​the ​aim ​of ​this ​all-day ​symposium ​is ​to ​address ​this ​very ​issue. ​ ​In ​addition, ​pediatricians ​know ​their ​families ​very ​well, ​and ​families ​often ​turn ​to ​them ​for ​their ​opinion ​in ​terms ​of ​what ​to ​do. ​ ​This ​will ​empower ​pediatricians ​to ​provide ​comprehensive ​care ​in ​their ​practice. ​
