Educating child neurologists about movement disorders

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The discipline of childhood movement disorders is an exciting new area of specialization within the field of pediatric neurology. Establishing a formal educational system is an ongoing challenge that should include the standardization of movement definitions, the development of a formal classification system for existing disorders, the adequate exposure of trainees to both common and rare disorders, and the ongoing formulation of topic guidelines and consensus papers. Specific suggestions and recommendations are provided for further discussion.
