Pakistan Society of Neurology (PSN)

 

Course Directors:
International: Drs Danish Bhatti and Shahid Rafiq
National:Drs Athar Javed and Sarwar Siddiqui

Course Introduction:
Up to 10% of patients seen by family practitioners present with neurologic symptoms. Only 16% are ever evaluated by neurologists in US and is likely even less, given significant lack of Neurologist in Pakistan (130-160 nationwide). Practicing physicians require a firm understanding of the general principles of clinical neurology.

Goals and Objectives:
To teach the principles and skills underlying the recognition and management of the common neurologic diseases a general medical practitioner is most likely to encounter in practice.
Ability to recognize symptoms, localize the likely sites, formulate a differential diagnosis, awareness of use and interpretation of common tests, and appropriate neurological consultations.
The course will also provide two practical workshops on Management of Acute stroke and common uses of botulinum toxin (BOTOX(r)) in General Practice.

Target Audience:
Primary audience: Primary care physicians (Internal medicine and Family practice)
Post Graduate Trainees in non-neurology programs (e.g. internal medicine or general surgery etc)
Secondary audience: Neurology trainees, ALL medical students, house officers, medical officers, sub-specialists non-neurologists (eg cardiologist, nephrologists etc), Ancillary care providers (therapists and rehab specialists etc), Nurses and case managers

This is a blog about various aspects of my professional side. I am a Movement Disorder Neurologist with strong focus on Parkinson's disease program development with clinical care and research, outreach and patient education. I'm an educator with a strong interest and passion in innovative methods including online learning and blended learning as they apply to clinical education or education of the medical students or more often physicians in training and practice (Continuing Medical Education). I am also using this platform to share personal achievements and sometimes general ideas which I believe are worth sharing.
