The Tourette Association of America is currently scheduling FREE introductory programs on the diagnosis and treatment of Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders through its partnership with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Why is it Important for Healthcare Providers to Learn About Tourette Syndrome and Other Tic Disorders?
Tourette Syndrome (TS) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can affect children and adults. Due to it complexity, TS is often misunderstood, under-recognized, and/or misdiagnosed. Healthcare providers can play an important role in increasing accurate recognition.
Who Should Attend These Programs?
These programs are most appropriate for physicians, nurses, and other allied health professionals working in the fields of pediatrics, neurology, psychiatry, and other related disciplines.
What do the Programs Entail?
- Medical programs are given by one of the TAA’s Medical or Scientific Advisory Board members who will present an overview of TS and Tic Disorders, common co-occurring conditions, differential diagnosis, effective treatments, and case management strategies.
- These programs typically are 1 hour in length and can be scheduled as grand rounds presentations, continuing education programs, or professional meetings.
- Attendees will receive a selection of educational resources and have the opportunity to be added to the Tourette Association’s physician or allied health professional referral list.
These programs are often approved for Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits. The Tourette Association does not formally offer the credits. However, we encourage host sites to apply for credits through an appropriate accrediting institution.
