Q&A With Oksana Suchowersky MD, FAAN, University of Alberta Hospital: Taking Treatment From the Clinic to Telemedicine
APRIL 28, 2015
As with all forms of medicine there are challenges associated with treating patients with hyperkinetic movement disorders. How doctors tackle those challenges can range from work in specialty clinics to consulting with patients through telemedicine.
Oksana Suchowersky, MD, FAAN, from the University of Alberta Hospital discussed how treatment has progressed for these conditions and how even patients in remote locations can receive the help they need during the American Academy of Neurology's annual meeting in Washington DC. While in person visits are preferred, and Suchowersky said first visits are usually done on site follow ups can be done from the comfort of the patient's home or at least a closer location.
