To provide education and advice to help healthcare professionals to carry out the following activities from the Paediatric Neurology Training Guide:
- Take a detailed history and assess a child/adolescent with a suspected Movement Disorders, using knowledge of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology to determine aetiology and management and taking into consideration the natural history of Movement Disorders from fetal to adult life
- Assess a child/adolescent presenting with common Movement Disorders phenotypes including tics, stereotypies, dystonia, athetosis, chorea, ataxia, myoclonus and spasticity.
- Assess functional motor skills and outcomes with established tools, that facilitate shared assessment for audit and research
- Investigate and manage status dystonicus and other acute onset movement disorder
- Evaluate normal variants in motor development and be confident in interpretation of ‘abnormal’ results in otherwise healthy children to ensure children are not submitted to unnecessary investigations
- Appreciate the neuropsychiatric features of certain Movement Disorders. Understand the role, potential complications and drug interactions of psychotropic drug treatment for neuropsychiatric co-morbidities of Movement Disorders. Know when to consider neuropsychiatric and psychological approaches in the management of tic disorders and Tourette syndrome.
- Advise on management of common movement disorders including use of orthoses, physical therapies and medication. Appropriately refer a child/adolescent for botulinum neurotoxin or functional neurosurgery (including deep brain stimulation and intra-thecal Baclofen) and can discuss treatment benefits and side effects with children, young people and their families
