The Movement Disorders Division within the Department of Neurology of the Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons will be conducting a comprehensive meeting on advances in the diagnosis and management of tremor and also the science of tremor disorders. The meeting addresses an important need for a comprehensive, academic educational program providing the latest information on innovations, insights on the latest science, and translation of the science to patient care. The conference is also consistent with the national call of the Precision Medicine Initiative for health care providers to pursue new approaches that tailor treatment to the individual patient’s characteristics because patient response to conventional treatments for tremor is often variable; therefore, education on new surgical and medical advancements that account for individual differences can optimize outcomes for patients with tremor. In addition, to understand the heterogeneity of tremor disorders will help to design and conduct robust clinical trials to push forward therapy development.
