UofL Physicians – Neurosciences – Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders in collaboration with Frazier Rehab Institute is offering a CME/CE activity to learn about functional movement disorders (FMD) with a focus on a pragmatic, multidisciplinary treatment approach. The Motor Retraining (MoRe) program for FMD was established at Frazier in 2014 following a model developed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. The program employs successful treatment rehabilitation strategies using physical, occupational and speech therapy as well as cognitive behavioral therapy modules. Faculty from UofL Physicians, Frazier Rehab and the Mayo Clinic will present a unique mix of lectures and practical training opportunities to gain knowledge and skills on treatment of FMD patients.

Target Audience: Neurologists, Physiatrists, physical, occupational and speech therapists, psychologists and other health care providers interested in the treatment of FMD.
