OVERVIEW
Highly popular over the past 10 years, the 11th Annual Johns Hopkins Dystonia & Spasticity Practicum, 2017 workshops will provide clinicians, with particular interest in neurotoxins, a unique opportunity to reinforce their knowledge and skills needed for the management of patients with dystonia and spasticity. This live activity will deliver a comprehensive update on recent scholarly data through interactive case presentations and hands-on injection training as demonstrated by our expert faculty. Clinical experts will discuss and demonstrate strategies for accurately assessing patients with dystonia and spasticity, selecting appropriate treatment options including botulinum neurotoxin therapies, and utilizing the best techniques for optimal administration, including EMG and ultrasound guidance.

GOAL
The purpose of the 11th Annual Johns Hopkins Dystonia and Spasticity Practicum will be to educate residents and fellows in neurology and physical medicine and rehabilitation, community neurologists, physiatrists, and physical and occupational therapists on the science and clinical issues related to the management of patients with dystonia and spasticity. This educational activity also seeks to provide attendees with in-depth, evidence-based education including hands-on experience in treating patients with dystonia and spasticity.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of neurology and physical medicine and rehabilitation residents and fellows, as well as community neurologists, physiatrists, physical, and occupational therapists. No prerequisites required.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
After attending this activity, participants will demonstrate the ability to:
  • RECOGNIZE the characteristic diagnostic features and presenting symptoms of dystonia and spasticity.
  • DESCRIBE the clinically relevant distinctions between botulinum toxin preparations to identify how to appropriately manage patients with each agent.
  • APPLY proper chemodenervation techniques for treatment of dystonia and spasticity.
  • EVALUATE guidance techniques that assist in chemodenervation injection.
