Did you know that a patient with Myasthenia Gravis is at risk for more than one type of life-threatening crisis?
Or, wonder which cranial nerves you should always assess and what those tests can quickly tell you?
Or, become intimidated explaining the complex neurological system to patients and their families?
If you have a hard time explaining to your patients why their heart disease is a risk factor for stroke, or how shrugging their shoulders and sticking out their tongues assesses brain function, or what medications can cause life threatening complications with a neurological disorder, then you need to join Susan Fralick-Ball, PsyD, MSN, CLNC, CH, a mentor who can make the information easy and understandable.
Designed with the bedside clinician in mind, this seminar is appropriate for all healthcare professionals wanting to improve assessment skills, build a firm foundation of the brain and nervous system anatomy and physiology and apply these skills in daily patient care. Understanding these essential concepts will help you find patient complications faster and respond to them more appropriately. Susan’s teaching style allows for informal, interactive discussion. You will leave with a systematic approach to assessments, an understanding of common neurological pathologies, and a renewed commitment to achieving excellence in patient care.
