Functional neurological disorder is a commonly encountered diagnosis in neurological clinical settings, and yet there is limited provider expertise in the assessment and management of this population. Part of the challenge is that while physical examination signs (neurological expertise) is used to inform the diagnosis of functional neurological disorder, the biopsychosocial formulations aids the development of a patient-centered treatment plan in a great many clinical instances. This talk will address these challenges using an integrated neuropsychiatric approach to the assessment and management of functional neurological disorder.
At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:
- Recognize on physical examination the rule in signs supporting a diagnosis of functional neurological disorder.
- Define good practices in the communication of a rule in diagnosis of functional neurological disorder.
- Identify good treatment practices in the management of functional motor symptoms.
