This is an online, self online CME self-learning program for therapeutic updates, best practices, and emerging therapies for Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a chronic, acquired, autoimmune disorder affecting the peripheral nervous system. Occurring at an incidence of 4-9 people per 100,000, CIDP most commonly occurs in adults aged of 40 to 60, although it may also occur in children and the elderly.
By the end of the session the participant will be able to:
- Describe the pathophysiology of CIDP such that it might inform treatment mechanisms
- Identify the currently available and emerging pharmacotherapeutic treatments for management of CIDP and apply them to patient cases using evidence-based medicine
- Modify an existing treatment plan for a specific patient with CIDP to optimize safety and efficacy following non-response to therapy
- Describe non-pharmacological options to manage CIDP
A Comprehensive Review of Geriatric Psychiatry
This CME course provides a wide-ranging review of geriatric psychiatry. It reviews best practice guidelines for the management of psychiatric disorders typically found in the geriatric population.

This CME program covers the breadth and depth of clinical neurology and its subspecialty areas, detailing the most current practical information. Comprehensive Review of Neurology comprises 50+ case-based lectures on topics like Alzheimer's disease, headache, fatigue, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders, etc. You'll get expert take-home points from each lecture, including:
- Functional Movement Disorders. Functional neurological disorders can be diagnosed with positive signs and symptoms, and are not only diagnosed by exclusion.
- Back and Neck Pain. While pain radiating to the extremeties is often caused by nerve root compression, axial spine pain is generally from musculoskeletal causes rather than nerve compression.
- Concussion. Concussion has reached epidemic proportions and clinicians must be able to diagnose, proivde guidance following injury, and manage common symptoms.
- Social Networks in Neurology. The influence of social relationships on risk for mortality is comparable with well-established risk factors for mortality.
- And many more!

Stay Abreast of Advances in Neurological Medicine
As new neurological therapeutics become available, it can be difficult for the non-neurologist to stay abreast. It is important that these clinicians — often the first a patient consults — are familiar with the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and prognosis associated with neurological conditions.
Neurology for Non-Neurologists covers the full scope of clinical neurology: commonly encountered patient complaints such as dizziness, back pain, seizures, and movement disorders, as well as special, common topics that can be mis- or underdiagnosed. Speakers in this online CME course are highly skilled with vast experience educating non-neurologists.
