25th International Symposium on the Autonomic Nervous System

Rio Grande, PR US
November 5, 2014 to November 8, 2014

Many specialty physicians and researchers view autonomic disorders only through their own disciplines.  Patients often travel from specialist to specialist without communication between those providers.  Research is approached in the same fashion.  We want to address the need for clinical and basic scientists with an interest in Autonomic Disorders to step back and view these disease symptoms as related under the umbrella of dysautonomia; not as anomalies specific to a specialty

Target Audience

We want to bring together individuals from diverse disciplines – neurology, gastroenterology, cardiology, endocrinology – both clinicians and researchers 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, I will be able to:

  • Articulate how symptoms in one organ system can be related – through dysautonomia – to systems in another organ system. 
  • Apply strategies from different specialties to my own area in order to take a broader perspective viewing the patient as a whole.
  • Collaborate with physicians and researchers that I have met at this event to present case studies for their opinions on diagnosis and treatment.
  • Confidently disseminate knowledge about the Autonomic Nervous System to colleagues.
