Clinical Neurology Distance Education

Clinical Neurology Distance Education

Are you over-referring? Neurological cases are probably some of the scariest to deal with and quickest to get referred. This course aims to demystify the process of localisation and help you gain the confidence to workup these often-tricky cases.

Starting with the basics of clinical neurology and an introduction to neuroanatomical localization, the aim is for you to develop a logical stepwise approach to neurological presentations.

Your learning will be enhanced by videos, photos and diagrams and expert feedback as you refine the skills to diagnose and manage common brain, spinal and neuromuscular diseases and adopt practical tips to apply in general practice.
