Accreditation

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this enduring material for a maximum of 17.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Date of original release: November 30, 2017
Date of credit termination: November 29, 2020
Estimated Time to Complete this CME Program: 17 hours

Method of Physician Participation: Review video/audio program of conference sessions
Evaluation Methods: Participants will complete a pre-program self-assessment, post-program self-assessment (score of at least 70% or greater is required), and activity evaluation to test knowledge gained from reviewing the program.

Disclosure Statement

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed the program is “truly independent” and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires non-promotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program’s participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy now mandates the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.

Learning Objectives

After viewing this activity, participants will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Conduct a comprehensive evidence-based review of common neurological problems
  • Present common and important neurologic conditions, emphasizing practical aspects of clinical care and highlighting recent discoveries in disease mechanisms, pathophysiology, diagnostic tools and recently approved treatment options
  • Propose effective evidence-based treatment options based on recent publications of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Practice Guidelines
  • Present “three new things” focusing on recent advances in the clinical domain
  • Review complementary and alternative medicine for specific neurological conditions

Target Audience

This educational activity was planned for neurologists in private, health groups, and/or academic practice, as well as psychiatrists and neurology and neurosurgery trainees. The course will also be very helpful to allied health care providers in neuroscience specialties (psychologists, physician assistants, nurses and nurse practitioners, speech pathologists, and physical and occupational therapists).
