TOXINS 101 Workshop

A Basic Course on the Clinical Applications of Botulinum Neurotoxin

Cynthia Comella (USA)
Mark Hallett (USA)
Giampietro Schiavo (UK)
Anthony Ward (UK)

This is a four-hour educational event designed as an overview of the use of botulinum neurotoxin in clinical practice. The target audience is clinicians (including those in training) who have relatively limited experience with botulinum neurotoxin, as well as interested basic scientists. This is an introductory program to provide basic knowledge of the clinical uses of botulinum neurotoxin. This course will provide a foundation of knowledge for more in-depth sessions to be held during the TOXINS 2019 main program. It is designed to allow those attending an insight into the principles of patient assessment, decision-making, and treatment approaches in managing people with a range of disabling conditions using botulinum neurotoxin. The course will focus on common disorders that are treated with botulinum neurotoxin.

The program will include didactic presentations, case histories, and videos. It will focus on practical issues, such as diagnosis, muscle selection and injection, determination of botulinum neurotoxin dosages, and recognition and management of adverse effects. It will provide ample opportunity for participant interaction.

New Abstract Topic

International Forum: Exploring the National, Regional, and Local Clinical Experience With Botulinum Neurotoxins

In recognition of the country-specific and/or institution-specific differences in the use of BoNTs in clinical practice, this session is designed for clinicians and research scientists to share their experience and insights with global colleagues. A session format combining presentations and a panel discussion will identify and explore these differences in the clinical application of BoNTs relating to: patient populations, treatment protocols, best practices for common indications, pharmacoeconomic considerations, and data for the use of BoNT therapy in innovative ways.
