Norwest Private Hospital invites General Practitioners to attend this live, online and interactive meeting presented by Professor Brian Owler and Dr Brian Hsu.
Activity ID 211642.
To date, no clinical picture or diagnostic test can distinguish idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH) or predict response to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunt surgery. As life expectancy increases, the necessity of accurately diagnosing and effectively treating patients affected by NHP become more challenging. This is because many older adults are incorrectly diagnosed with disorders such as Parkinson's disease and dementia. Hear neurosurgeon Prof Brian Owler deliver a lecture on the Diagnosis, investigation and treatment of normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH).
A wide variety of diseases and disorders of the central nervous system (brain), nerves and muscles can, but not invariably, result in the development of scoliosis. These factors present a challenge for GPs when entering into the decision-making process. There is difficulty treating scoliosis because there are many causes of scoliosis. Hear Dr Brian Hsu – paediatric and adult orthopaedic spinal surgeon deliver a talk on the diagnosis, investigation and treatment for scoliosis.
Through this activity, GP's will be able to:
1. Analyse, diagnose and effectively treat patients affected by normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH);
2. Apply improved knowledge in the diagnosis, investigation and treatment of scoliosis;
3. Understand when the criteria for immediate referral of patients is met.
