Identifying and Treating Tremor, Parkinson's and Chorea

This series meets Tuesdays (weekly) from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm MT


Tremors impact over 10 million Americans and are a common complaint in the primary care clinic. Tremor is seen in Parkinson’s disease, Essential Tremor and other causes. You will first learn quick exam techniques to assess tremor and rapidly narrow your differential diagnosis. As our population ages, so does the prevalence of neurodegenerative disease like Parkinson’s Disease (PD). It is responsible for nearly 3 million disability adjusted life years globally and this has been increasing rapidly since the early 90s. You will also learn treatment basics in PD and when to refer. The course will also teach reliable recognition and differential diagnosis of chorea, including many medical and metabolic causes, and will highlight the most common genetic cause of chorea, Huntington’s Disease, as well as effective new treatments for chorea. In the final session, case-based discussion will illustrate common psychiatric problems and treatments in those with Parkinson’s Disease and Huntington’s Disease.
