Spasticity and other Movement Disorders: Pediatric and Adult Symposium – Cleveland Clinic

May 13, 2016 - May 14, 2016

$280

The symposium will highlight strategies to assess and manage spasticity, and to enhance function and quality of life in individuals suffering from the consequences of spasticity. The topics will cover management options (rehabilitation, devices, medical and surgical treatments) across neurological conditions that cause spasticity, and throughout the patient’s lifetime. A combination of didactic presentations, case discussions, and breakout sessions will be used to illustrate the complexity of decision making and outcome measurement. The interaction between the audience and faculty will be encouraged throughout the symposium. An emphasis will be placed on information that can be applied in clinical practice, including recent advances. While spasticity will be the main topic, the assessment, and management of other movement disorders will also be discussed.

Target Audience
