About this event

  • Date and time Thu 10 Oct 2019 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Clinical Neurosciences

The heart of any neurological assessment is clinically based. This meeting will emphasise the importance of clinical assessment and what are the features of a great clinical neurologist?

Clinical assessment and the art of medicine is declining in modern-day medicine. Basic clinical assessments such as the laying-on of the hands is being replaced by an increasing reliance on investigations, this will be illustrated via recent case studies, and excerpts of a video by Professor Varghesi.

In comparison to declining clinical assessments, Dr Chris Allen will provide examples of the best clinical neurologists and the reasons for his selection, so that delegates can glean for themselves what makes a great clinical neurologist.

Topics include:

  • How clinical history and examination remain key to the assessment of the neurological patient?
  • How important is the history versus the examination in neurology?
  • Symptoms and signs of patient encounters that can help the budding neurologist
  • What are the features of a great clinical neurologist?
