Led by AAN member neurologists who are experts in their fields, the workshop will offer attendees an opportunity to enhance their knowledge and awareness of regulatory requirements and issues, determine how clinical studies should be conducted and how results should be conveyed to achieve greatest safety and effectiveness. They will also participate in breakout group discussions related to various approaches to use and how to incorporate this information into clinical practice. On the second half-day of the workshop, breakout group moderators will present a summary of the discussions from the previous day and their assessment of any unaddressed areas.
