An update on degenerative cervical myelopathy
This webinar will provide an update on the current status of degenerative cervical myelopathy. It will cover the basics, provide an update on where current research stands and how this influences clinical decision making. The webinar will cover the recent international guidelines, and provide evidence of current bottlenecks in the patient pathway in the UK.

Learning Objectives:
By the end of this webinar, attendees should be able to understand:
1. the basic pathophysiology, etiology, prevalence and presentation of DCM
2. the implications that a diagnosis of DCM can cause on quality of life and societal cost
3. that delayed treatment is associated with a poorer outcome
4. that surgery is the only validated effective treatment for DCM; guidelines propose that surgical decision making needs to prioritise patient symptoms, not imaging.
