This is an online, self online CME self-learning program for therapeutic updates, best practices, and emerging therapies for Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a chronic, acquired, autoimmune disorder affecting the peripheral nervous system. Occurring at an incidence of 4-9 people per 100,000, CIDP most commonly occurs in adults aged of 40 to 60, although it may also occur in children and the elderly.
By the end of the session the participant will be able to:
- Describe the pathophysiology of CIDP such that it might inform treatment mechanisms
- Identify the currently available and emerging pharmacotherapeutic treatments for management of CIDP and apply them to patient cases using evidence-based medicine
- Modify an existing treatment plan for a specific patient with CIDP to optimize safety and efficacy following non-response to therapy
- Describe non-pharmacological options to manage CIDP

Topic and Learning Objectives
- Identify different and various forms of agitation among patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD).
- Review proposed mechanisms underlying agitation in AD and how pharmacologic agents may affect them
- Evaluate body of evidence of current and emerging pharmacologic agents for the management of agitation/aggression in patients with AD
Osler Neurology Board Reviews was developed to help you pass your Neurology board exams. This program is mainly for your written exam but is also beneficial for your oral boards. Focus is on board-relevant standards of care, integrating new ideas and treatments. Many of our previous students have found the course helped them to identify weaknesses and to organize further self-study.
