In answer to member requests for more varied learning formats for the Annual Meeting Education Program, the AAN is offering several new programs that encourage greater involvement from attendees and, according to Education Committee Chair Cynthia L. Comella, MD, FAAN, "will allow meeting directors and faculty to move away from didactic programming and allow for more interactive, hands-on education opportunities."

The Morning Report and Neuro Flash programs will use the Audience Response System (ARS), which actively engages participants, facilitates discussion, and enhances educational value.

Case-based Morning Report Programs Have Grand Rounds Feel

For the Morning Report, program directors will present case studies in a grand rounds style format to elicit questions and answers from participants. Three Morning Report programs will run from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. on Monday, April 12. Attendees may receive 1.5 CME credits for these programs:

  • Morning Report: Behavioral Neurology
    Brandy R. Matthews, MD
  • Morning Report: Chronic Migraine: Basis and Tools for Management
    Sheena K. Aurora, MD
  • Morning Report: Multiple Sclerosis

Neuro Flash Programs Give Fast, Interactive Updates in Neurology

The Neuro Flash programs debut this year with evening updates on a variety of hot clinical topics. Five half-hour, case-by-case talks will be followed by questions and answers.
