New treatment guidelines for Tourette Syndrome were recently released by the American Academy of Neurology (May 2019). This webinar is being held to update medical providers with the most recent recommendations and strategies on how to best treat patients with TS and Tic Disorders. Medications have typically been used to treat TS and its co-occurring conditions, however there is no pharmacological treatment that works for everyone.
Primary care physicians, physician specialists, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, psychologists, physician assistants, social workers, medical students, residents, fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients affected by Tourette Syndrome.
At the conclusion of this webinar, the participant should be better able to:
- Review evidence-based recommendations on the assessment and management of individuals with Tourette syndrome
- Discuss how to safely prescribe and monitor treatment response
