46th Annual Meeting of the Southern Clinical Neurological Society (SCNS)

Purpose and Target Audience


The 46th Annual Meeting of the Southern Clinical Neurological Society is designed to provide practicing neurologists with the most up-to-date information for the diagnosis and management of the patient with neurologic conditions.  Each day is built around a specific clinical topic presented by experts who provide practical information for evaluation and treatment.


The annual meeting is designed primarily for practicing neurologists. Other neurology health care providers including fellows, residents, physician assistants and nurse practitioners also benefit. Over the past 45 years, professionals from across the country have attended this meeting.


CME Credit Designation


Vanderbilt University Medical Center is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Vanderbilt University Medical Center designates this live activity for a maximum of 26.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits (TM). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


Self-Assessments and PIP


In addition to the meeting, three Self-Assessment exams (SA) and a Performance-in-Practice (PIP) have been approved by the American Board of Psychiatry (ABPN) as required elements for Part II and IV Maintenance of Certification (MOC). The MOC program requires participants to participate in sanctioned self-assessment performance measures, identify possible weaknesses in their knowledge, pursue learning activities tailored to individual areas that need to be strengthened, and develop quality improvement programs based on their clinical practice. The goal for participants is to reflect on their personal knowledge and performance, commit to a process of improvement and reevaluation over specified time frames, and continually improve care for their patients.


Each Self-Assessment exam is approved for 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits (TM). The Performance-in-Practice exercise is approved for 20.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits (TM). Only registered attendees may participate in these activities. At the meeting, participants will receive a certificate of completion for each self-assessment exam completed. Once all steps of the PIP are completed, participants will receive a certificate of completion.


Registration for these activities will be separate from annual meeting registration. There will be a discussion of the Performance-in-Practice activities for registered participants in an afternoon session on Sunday, January 19, 2020.


Statement of Educational Need


To be more capable of practice at the level of the standard of care, neurologists need a better understanding of the pathophysiology of movement disorders, epilepsy, stroke, dementia, headache, sleep medicine, neuromuscular diseases and neuroimmunology disorders. They also need improved evaluation and management strategies in addition to novel approaches in monitoring patients with these conditions.


Learning Objectives


After participating in this CME activity, participants should be able to describe and discuss:



  • Improved evaluation and diagnosis of movement disorders, epilepsy, stroke, dementia, headache, sleep medicine, neuromuscular diseases and neuroimmunology disorders.

  • Select patients for FDA-approved therapies including oral medications, biologics and therapies delivered via continuous pumps or infusion.

  • Evidence-based management strategies for movement disorders, epilepsy, stroke, dementia, headache, sleep medicine, neuromuscular diseases and neuroimmunology disorders.
