>

March 18 from 6:30-7:30 PM
District 3 FREE Virtual Meeting to all members!

Topic: 

Functional neurologic disorder (FND) is a condition of the nervous system in which there is abnormal signaling between the brain and body which disrupts movement or function. FND is a common movement disorder seen in the outpatient setting with various presentations including weakness, abnormal motor patterns, sensory or visual changes not consistent with a pathologic pattern, nonepileptic seizures, and gait abnormalities. This lecture will outline the pathophysiology, diagnosis, assessment and consensus recommendations for treatment of FND primarily in the outpatient setting.
