The 31st International Congress of Clinical Neurophysiology (ICCN 2018) is designed to provide a review of the fundamentals and the latest scientific advances in all aspects of clinical neurophysiology. Presentations at ICCN 2018 are given by leading experts in the field and have value for health care professionals who utilize clinical neurophysiology. Sessions include courses, symposia, workshops, and Special Interest Groups, featuring didactic lectures, expert panels, debates and interactive formats. Poster presentations will highlight the latest work conducted at clinical neurophysiology centers around the world.
The ICCN’s educational activities are directed to the following individuals:
- Neurologists, including specialists in epilepsy, neuromuscular disorders, sleep medicine, movement disorders, autonomic disorders, neuro ICU, neurophysiology, neuroimaging, cognitive neurology and general neurologists;
- Neurophysiologists with special interests in EEG, EMG, evoked potentials, sleep medicine, autonomics, MEG, brain stimulation, brain-computer interface, neuroimaging, brain connectivity, cognition and intraoperative monitoring;
- Neurology and clinical neurophysiology trainees; residents, fellows and students;
- Neuroscientists, including researchers of various neurologic disorders, neurophysiology, neuromodulation, neurostimulation, brain connectivity and cognitive neurosciences;
- Technologists involved in a wide array of neurophysiologic tests, including EEG, EMG and nerve conduction studies, evoked potentials, intraoperative monitoring, autonomics, MEG, noninvasive brain stimulation;
- Affiliated personnel, such as nurses, patient care coordinators and business managers involved with the care of patients with neurologic illnesses.
At the end of the ICCN, the participant will be able to:
- Describe the indications for use of clinical neurophysiology techniques in diagnosis and management of disorders of the nervous system;
- Incorporate new neurophysiology procedures and technological advances into his/her own clinical practice;
- Perform and interpret a broad range of clinical neurophysiology procedures, and integrate the results of these tests into comprehensive patient management plans;
- Discuss recent advances in clinical neurophysiology techniques and related disorders; and
- Apply advances in clinical neurophysiology techniques to improve the diagnosis of neurologic disorders.
This activity will be planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Polices of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the sponsorship of ACNS. ACNS is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
