Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

Patient-based autonomic disorder workshop May 21

Collectively, functional and structural autonomic disorders affect millions of Americans, but many primary care physicians never receive specific training on their diagnosis and management. Autonomic Disorders Workshop for Generalists, a live, patient-based workshop May 21 in Milwaukee, aims to fill that gap.

Approved for AMA PRA Category 1 credit™, the day-long workshop will focus on the practical diagnosis and management of functional and structural autonomic disorders and how to work with referral centers. Experts from the Medical College of Wisconsin, Mayo Clinic and across the country will review orthostatic disorders like postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, syncope and functional gastrointestinal and genetic disorders, and will highlight the protean manifestations of autonomic disorders in multiple end-organs. Following sessions on functional and structural disorders, participants will elicit histories from live patients who have experienced these conditions to facilitate learning.
