First NeuroLearn Course Now Available on Fibromyalgia

July 3, 2012


"Fibromyalgia — What's the Deal?" is the first course available from NeuroLearn, the AAN's newest online learning program.

The course, which offers two CME credits upon successful completion, addresses the many facets of fibromyalgia, from the nuts and bolts of epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment, to more challenging issues like communication, pathophysiology, and alternative therapies.

"Whether or not you buy into fibromyalgia as a 'real' disease or a symptom complex, the patients who suffer with these issues clearly exist and frequently see neurologists along the way," said Course Director Joseph E. Safdieh, MD.

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Identify patients with fibromyalgia and initiate a comprehensive multimodal treatment plan
  • Understand the neurologic basis of the disorder and be able to tease out comorbidities
  • Educate patients and caregivers about the nature and management of fibromyalgia

The "Fibromyalgia—What's the Deal?" course is available to AAN members for only $39, a $30 savings from non-member pricing.
