Peter H. Berman, MD, former Chief of the Division of Neurology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia once said at the Child Neurology Society Annual Meeting, “Child neurologists don’t need to see every child whose problems lie in the central or peripheral nervous system. But they must do a better job with training pediatricians to recognize neurology problems in children and to know when referrals to child neurologists are necessary”. This program will highlight common pediatric neurology diagnosis and provide commonsense guideposts for non-neurologists to manage and refer these patients appropriately.
