Conference Will Highlight Collaboration Between KNI and Community Providers

The Departments of Neurology & Neurosurgery at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine and the Kentucky Neuroscience Institute (KNI) will offer a Practical Update in Neurology and Neurosurgery on May 18. 

The event offers a wide variety of community providers up-to-date practical information to manage patients with neurological disorders in their daily practice. 

According to Dr. Larry Goldstein, neurologists, internists, family practice physicians, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, occupational and physical therapists all can benefit from the day's presentations, which include topics such as back pain, pediatric and adolescent epilepsy, neuropathy, basic interpretation of EMG, tremors and memory disorders.

"Partnership with community providers is an essential component of the KNI philosophy," said Goldstein, who is chair of the Department of Neurology at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. "The Practical Update offers new and useful information that providers can apply to their daily practice, which ultimately benefits the patient." 

The event is free and will take place at the U.K. Albert B. Chandler Hospital Pavilion A Auditorium at 8 a.m. Attendees must register.
