Meeting Description

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

The 2014 Fall Courses are designed around two of the new and rapidly-evolving areas of clinical neurophysiology, Neurological Intraoperative Monitoring (NIOM) and Intensive Care Unit EEG Monitoring (ICU EEG). Educational activities will cover both basic methodologies for those practitioners new to NIOM and ICU EEG, and innovative techniques. New to the Fall Courses in 2014 are morning courses covering two additional topics, Epilepsy Surgery and Pediatric EEG.

Target Audience

Clinical neurophysiologists, neurologists, physiatrists, neurosurgeons, technologists, trainees in these disciplines and other physicians and researchers who specialize in clinical neurophysiology.

Disclosure of Conflict of Interest

It is the policy of ACNS to ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor in all its individually sponsored or jointly sponsored educational programs. In order to comply with the ACCME’s Updated Standards for Commercial Support, ACNS requires that anyone who is in a position to control the content of an educational activity discloses all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest pertaining to the content of the presentation. Should it be determined that a conflict of interest exists as a result of a financial relationship of a planner of the CME activity, the planner must recuse himself or herself from the planning for that activity or relevant portion of that activity. All presentations for which the presenter disclosed a potential conflict of interest are peer reviewed by two members of the ACNS CME Committee with no relationships. If bias is found, the presenter is asked to make changes to the presentation and it is re-reviewed for bias before final approval. Refusal to disclose a conflict or the inability to resolve an identified conflict precludes participation in the CME activity. Complete conflict of interest disclosure information is printed in the final program for the activity.
