Journal CME highlights various articles covering relevant issues, developments and research topics in the area of movement disorders. Articles are selected from Movement Disorders, the official Journal of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society.
Upon completion of this activity learners will be able to:
1. Assess the hypothesis that conventional infectious agents have long been suspected to have an implication in the onset of α-synucleinopathies2. Evaluate the aims of the study in terms of the ongoing relevant factors favoring and opposing its hypothesis3. Understand that certain susceptibility factors might be necessary for an infectious agent to trigger the onset of α-synucleinopathies
This activity is intended for clinicians, other health professionals, researchers, policy makers from throughout the world, both MDS members and non-members, who interact with patients living with Movement Disorders.
