First-line Management of the Neurological Patient


Welcome to a course in First-line management of the neurological patient!

Patients with neurological problems often present acutely to the general practitioner who may find these patients challenging and frustrating. This online course will focus on the first-line management of the most common neurological presentations e.g. the seizuring, paretic, and ataxic patient. The course will be case-oriented and focused on clinical reasoning. A basic understanding of the neurological examination is essential, and will be provided, however we will not dwell on details.

The course is aimed at veterinarians working in general practice who want to develop or refresh their knowledge within neurology.

National accreditations can be applied for upon request.

Course language is English.
