Description

Registering:

Ever wonder how you're going to manage to fit in time to take a thorough history and examination in your OSCEs?

Join our clinically focused teaching on acute and chronic neurologic problems to help prepare for finals where we discuss history-taking, physical examinations, investigations, and how to differentiate between different causes of acute and chronic neurologic problems with practice case scenarios.

This teaching is not only aimed at Manchester medical students, anyone is welcome to join.

Certificates and slides are given once the feedback form is completed.

Conditions we will cover:

- Cerebrovascular disorders (e.g. stroke and transient ischaemic attack)

- Raised intracranial pressure (e.g. extradural haematoma, subdural haematoma, subarachnoid haemorrhage, tumours)

- Inflammatory/autoimmune disorders (e.g. multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and vasculitis)

- Infective disorders (e.g. meningitis and encephalitis)

- Degenerative disorders (e.g. motor neurone disease, Huntington's disease, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, and Duchenne muscular dystrophy)

Learning Objectives:

1. How to take a concise neurologic history and know when to ask what question

2. Physical examinations to consider and their relevant signs

3. Investigations for neurologic disorders and when to consider them

4. Causes of neurologic disorders and how do differentiate between them

5. Practice OSCE scenarios to apply knowledge of neurologic disorders

Summary

This session focuses on how to deal with patients presenting with acute and chronic sensorimotor problems, including asking the right questions in history-taking, performing relevant physical examinations, when to order what test, and how to differentiate between causes of acute and chronic sensorimotor symptoms. Conditions we will cover include: - Cerebrovascular disorders (e.g. stroke and transient ischaemic attack) - Raised intracranial pressure (e.g. extradural haematoma, subdural haematoma, subarachnoid haemorrhage, tumours) - Inflammatory/autoimmune disorders (e.g. multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and vasculitis) - Infective disorders (e.g. meningitis and encephalitis) - Degenerative disorders (e.g. motor neurone disease, Huntington's disease, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, and Duchenne muscular dystrophy)
