Product Information
Abstract: 

This web-module series was created for third-year medical students on the neurology clerkship to teach them about ten geriatric neurology topics: Parkinson's disease, stroke, dementia, delirium, peripheral neuropathy, neck/back pain, sleep disorders, temporal arteritis, cranial nerve disorders, and localization of a lesion. A case and post-module questions are provided for each topic.

Educational objectives: 
  1. The students will be able to evaluate patients with neck and back pain.
  2. The students will be able to identify spinal root innervation of upper and lower extremity reflexes.
  3. The students will be able to map myotomal innervation of major muscles in the upper and lower extremities.
  4. The students will be able to describe signs and symptoms of temporal arteritis.
  5. The students will be able to outline appropriate treatment for a patient with temporal arteritis.
  6. The students will be able to localize major neurological deficits.
  7. The students will be able to recognize the cardinal features of Parkinson's Disease.
  8. The students will be able to diagnose the parkinsonian gait from the video clip.
  9. The students will be able to compare and contrast hemorrhagic, thrombotic, and embolic strokes.
  10. The students will be able to identify stroke risk factors.
  11. The students will be able to evaluate a stroke patient.
  12. The students will be able to develop an appropriate treatment plan for a stroke patient.
  13. The students will be able to describe the physical examination findings in a patient with peripheral neuropathy.
  14. The students will be able to outline an appropriate treatment plan for a patient with peripheral neuropathy.
  15. The students will be able to compare and contrast Alzheimer's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementia, vascular dementia, normal pressure hydrocephalus, Creutzfeldt-Jakob (CJD), and Wernicke’s encephalopathy.
  16. The students will be able to outline appropriate treatment for a patient with dementia.
  17. The students will be able to identify physical signs associated with cranial nerve disorders.
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Prior to initiation of the web-module, 20 medical students in the neurology clerkship were taught using a standard didactic lecture series. These students were administered a pre- and post-test questionnaire to assess their knowledge of the geriatric neurology topics. After implementation of the web-module, the geriatric neurology topics were no longer included in the didactic lecture series. Instead this information was provided only through the web-module. While post-test scores between the two curricula were not significantly different, knowledge of geriatric neurology did improve through use of both geriatric neurology didactic lectures and web-module presentation of these topics. Therefore, the geriatric neurology web-module appears to be an effective means of educating third-year medical students in geriatric neurology topics.

This educational web module provides a case and post-module questions for each of the following topics:

  • The evaluation, localization, and treatment of neck and back pain
  • The evaluation and treatment of temporal arteritis
  • The localization of neurologic deficits
  • The diagnosis and presentation of Parkinson's Disease
  • The diagnosis and presentation of stroke
  • The evaluation and treatment of peripheral neuropathy
  • The evaluation and treatment of a patient with dementia
  • The evaluation of cranial nerve disorders
  • The evaluation of and risk factors for delirium
  • Common causes of sleep disturbances
Publications from, presentations from, and/or citations to this product: 

A study was performed to evaluate the effectiveness of the web module in educating third-year medical students regarding geriatric neurology topics. The above abstract was submitted, accepted for presentation, and presented at the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA in April 2009 and at the American Geriatric Society meeting in Chicago, IL in April 2009.
