Continuing Education Credits to Date
Mirna I. Vrbancic, Ph.D. and Ashfaq Shuaib, M.D. from the Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon, SK, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB. The Effects of Cerebrovascular Disease on Cognition, National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002. This workshop was intended to provide 1-participants with pertinent information on the pathophysiological bases of clinical presentation of stroke and its risk factors, 2-currently available technologies to evaluate the differential diagnosis of stroke (i.e. transient ischemic attack, lacunarstroke, completed stroke, emobilic and subarachnoid hemorrhage, 3-underlying etiologies of stoke, 4-the neuropsychological and behavior data characterizing the various presentation of stoke, 5-recent advances in the management and prevention of stroke (i.e., antiplatelets, TPA, and neuroprotection), 6-clincial outcome neuropsychological Research findings following some of the most frequently employed treatments for management of vascular disease and prevision of stroke (ie. Carotid endarterectomy, coronary bypass, stents, and hypothermia). They workshop ended with a summary discussion on preventive management of stroke, including the most efficacious techniques now being employed to improve recovery from stroke, and the long term management of the neuropsychological behavioral sequaelae of stroke.
George P.Prigatano, Ph.D., Newil H. Pliskin, Ph.D., Lorie A Humphrey, Ph.D., & Christian A. Meyers, Ph.D. Clinical Neuropsychology and Cost Outcome, National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002 . Neuropsychologists are being increasingly called upon to demonstrate the value of their services. This workshop introduced clinical neuropsychologists to the concepts and challenges involved in conducting cost outcome research. It provided examples of how such research can be conducted with patients with malignant brain tumors, children with learning disabilities, and patients suffering from cerebrovascular accidents. It will review the clinical utility of various neuropsychological services and introduced the concept of “objective” and “subjective’ markers of value when studying cost effectiveness in neuropsychology. It will also provide examples of how clinical neuropsychological services of different patient populations may reduce “costs” and increase “benefits”. The workshop was based on the recently published book: Clinical Neuropsychology and Cost Outcome Research: A Beginning, which is the first book of the National Academy of Neuropsychology book series entitled, Neuropsychology: Scientific Basis and Clinical Applications.
E;sa G. Shapiro, Ph.D. Childhood Dementia, National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002 New treatments for certain childhood diseases causing neurodegeneration have focused attention on childhood dementia. The time course of dementia in childhood is fundamentally different than adults because of developmental change. Lack of knowledge regarding the natural history of the cognitive decline in untreated children with neurodegenerative diseases makes evaluating the effects of children with neurodegenerative diseases makes evaluating the effects of intervention on developmental trajectories challenging. Topics included defining childhood dementia, white mater disease in children and neuropsychological correlates; effects of age, localization and state of disease on neuropsychological function: MRI, and MRS findings, early detection; measuring effects of treatment ; and description of specific neurodegenerative syndromes in children. In addition, new biological treatments will be discussed as well as educational, psychological and rehabilitative interventions. The focus was on what childhood neurodegenerative diseases can teach about normal and abnormal development.
Ronald M.Ruff, Ph.D. Ruff-Light Trail Learning Test National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002 Most neuropsychological test batteries include a measure for verbal learning. Why is it not equally important to evaluate visuospatial memory? The Ruff-Light Trail Learning Test (RULIT) was developed to capture visuospatial learning and memory without the confounds of relying on drawing skills, keen eyesight or good motor control. The patient is asked to learn a 15-step pathway. Normative data are available for adults between the ages of 16 and 70 years, stratified according to education. Two matched test versions were reviewed. Clinical data has demonstrated the unique application of the different test components for learning, immediate memory and delayed memory. The RULIT’s factorial validity has been compared to attention, memory and executive functioning in both the verbal and visuospatial modes. The RULIT is sensitive to right hemisphere functioning and thus is a clinically relevant test for diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
David B. Arciniegas, M.D. Neuropsychiatry of Temporolimbic Disorders. National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002 The cardinal features of temporolimbic dysfunction are disturbances in emotion, behavior, cognition and physical functions (e.g seizures). The task of understanding temporolimbic functioning and anatomy is challenging, as these functions and their neurobiological basis are extraordinary complex. This workshop provided a review of temporal limbic functions and disorders. Recent advances in the basic and clinical neurosciences regarding the neurobiological foundations of emotion and temporolimbically-mediated cognition and behavior was discussed. Based on these findings, a conceptual framework within which temporolimbic disorders and their treatments may be usefully understood were offered. Illustrative case examples were presented, and audience members were invited to contribute their own cases to the discussion.
James A. Holdnack, Ph.D., The Psychological Corporation, Bear, DE D-KEFS Sorting, Tower and Fluency Tests National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002 This workshop provides detailed description of scoring procedures for the DKEFS Sorting, Tower and Fluency Tests. Coring and interpretation of primary, contrast, and process measures were discussed for each test.
Gordon, J. Chelune, Ph.D. Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH. Multiple Sclerosis and Neuropsychology . National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002 Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is the most common cause of chronic neurological disability among young adults typically beginning between the ages of 20 and 40 and affecting woman more often than men. Pathologically, MS is characterized by areas of demyelinations and perivascular inflammation in the white mater of the CNS. This session reviewed the demographic characteristics of MS, current diagnostic criteria, viral and autoimmune concepts of MS pathophysiology, the role of neuroimaging, and advances in disease-modifying treatments. Because MS predominantly affects young adults during their most productive years, special attention was given to the role that neuropsychological assessment plays in the management of the psychosocial and economic needs of the MS patient. Strategies for assessing the cognitive functions of patients with MS and the use of base rate information were discussed within the context of clinical case material.
Tulsky, Ph.D., Kessler Medical Rehabilitation Research and Education Corporation, West Orange, NJ, Integrating the WAIS-III and WMS-II . National Academy of Neuropsychology, Lowes Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002 This workshop wove together historical events in cognitive testing with new advances and models for using the WAIS-III and WMS-III in practice. Attendees learned about how these commonly used instruments were derived and how little has changed over time. The co-norming methodology that was used with the WASI-III and WMS_III afforded a wealth of data and has allowed new modifications in the way these scales can be used in practice. A new six factor model of cognitive functioning has been developed and new norms have been created . New research on discrepancy analyses, demographic adjusted scores, serial testing, score proration and subtest substitution, and testing the bilingual examinee were reviewed as well as other new research that has appeared since the scales were published. A theme of the workshop was that through the field has seen little change in testing practices over the last 100 years, these new procedures can improve clinical practice. The workshop ended with a discussion of the new advances that might be on the horizon for cognitive assessment.
