  • Neurological Emergencies: Case Studies in Critical Diagnoses. The approach to neurological emergencies often seems daunting to non-neurologists. But as the population ages, these conditions will be seen with increasing frequency. Compared to some other areas in medicine, the neurological differential diagnosis, physical examination and imaging strategies seems (and often is) more complicated. As well, newer data have greatly impacted the field as the evidence base expands. At the same time, at many locales, on-site, real time neurological consultation may not be rapidly available. For all of these reasons, non-neurologists need to be able to handle, or at a minimum, strategize the acute management issues in patients with neurological emergencies.

  • Assessing Medical Fitness to Return to Work “ Primary Care physicians are often requested to provide information on a patient’s fitness to return to work following injury or illness. U.S. primary care physicians report that they are requested to provide opinions regarding work ability or “fitness for duty,” on average, in up to 10% of all office visits. However, very little training is routinely offered in medical or postgraduate education pertaining to the health effects of work and assessing work readiness. Both generalists and specialists report that dealing with sickness certification and work ability can be problematic, including potential conflict of interest between their best medical judgment and what their patients desire. Education in a structured approach to fitness to work assessment method can enhance physicians’ knowledge about work fitness assessments as well as their confidence in performing assessments“.
