This annual conference is specifically designed for medical practitioners involved in the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of complex patients with peripheral nervous system diseases and injuries. The goal of this year's course is to improve the integration of both the clinical and electrical findings in generating a comprehensive diagnosis for individual patients. Participants will improve the following essential skills in: their understanding of basic concepts of membrane conduction, voluntary motor unit identification, identifying spontaneous waveforms and recruitment patterns; localizing sites of nerve pathology, differentiating axonal from demyelinating neuropathies; identifying anterior horn cell and neuromuscular junction diseases and myopathies. A few selective diseases and injuries will be presented to achieve the purpose of the course. The approach taken in this course includes didactic presentation, case studies, and audience participation. Case studies will be presented in each teaching session to reinforce new information and best clinical practices.
