Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Neurology Volume 04, Issue 01: Medical and Legal Considerations.
The goal of this program is to improve the management of dementia and parkinsonian syndromes. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Diagnose the types of dementias and prescribe appropriate medical treatments.
2. Support the caregivers of patients with dementia and enhance their ability to cope with the behavioral problems associated with the different types of dementia.
3. Evaluate patients’ ability to speak and the components involved in normal speech.
4. Recognize and classify the dysarthrias and abnormal speech patterns that accompany various dementias and parkinsonian syndromes.
5. Determine whether a patient has the capacity to provide consent to treatment.
The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
