Meeting Description

The ACNS Annual Meeting & Courses are designed to provide a solid review of the fundamentals and the latest scientific advances in both “central” and “peripheral” clinical neurophysiology. Presentations at the Annual Meeting & Courses are given by leading experts in the field and have value for health care professionals who utilize clinical neurophysiology. Sessions include symposia, workshops, courses and Special Interest Groups, featuring didactic lectures, expert panels, debates and interactive formats. Poster presentations at the Annual Meeting highlight the latest work conducted at clinical neurophysiology centers around the country.

Annual Meeting Objectives

At the end of the Annual Meeting, the participant will be able to:

  1. Discuss recent advances in electroencephalography, evoked potentials, ALS, magnetoencephalography, practice technologies, nerve conduction studies and other clinical neurophysiology techniques; and
  2. Apply advances in clinical neurophysiology techniques to improve the diagnosis of neurologic disorders.

Course Objectives

At the end of the Annual Courses, the participant will be able to:

  1. Describe the indications for use of clinical neurophysiology techniques in diagnosis of disorders of the nervous system;
  2. Incorporate new neurophysiology procedures and technological advances into his/her own clinical practice; and
  3. Perform and interpret a broad range of clinical neurophysiology procedures, and integrate the results of these

Target Audience

The Society’s educational activities are directed to clinical neurophysiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, physiatrists, neurosurgeons, trainees in these disciplines, other physicians and researchers, and neurophysiology technologists who specialize in the utilization of clinical neurophysiological techniques that advance the knowledge in the diagnosis and management of patients with disorders of the peripheral and central nervous system.

Accreditation Statement

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Polices of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the sponsorship of ACNS. ACNS is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
