PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY FOR INTERNISTS AND PRIMARY CARE HEALTH PROVIDERS

SUMMARY

This CME course will provide a comprehensive review of the clinical presentations, differential diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of patients with neuropathy. It is directed at internists, primary health care providers, and specialists as well as neurologists that see such patients in their practice. The information will enable providers to recognize the symptoms and signs of neuropathy, develop a differential diagnosis, know which tests to order, and provide the most appropriate treatment for both the symptoms and underlying cause of the neuropathy.
