Adapting Neurologic Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Episode 8,  Mar 20, 2020, 12:00 PM

Welcome to the NeurologyLive Mind Moments podcast.

This special episode of the Mind Moments Podcast is focused on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The spread of the novel virus has resulted in an upheaval of daily life both inside and outside of the clinic. We are learning more everyday about the risks for patients with neurological disorders, especially those who receive treatment with therapies that act on the immune system, and the significant adjustments required to keep clinical care running smoothly during this time. 
 
In this episode, Barry Singer, MD, Director of the MS Center for Innovations in Care at Missouri Baptist Medical Center in St. Louis, discusses how he is actively making adjustments to his patients' treatment regimens to help reduce their risk in the face of the novel coronavirus. 

Our second guest, Nina Riggins, MD, PhD, a headache specialist at the University of California in San Francisco, has taken her practice online via telemedicine in response to the spread of COVID-19. Riggins offers her insights on the transition to telemedicine visits, as well as specific treatment considerations for patients with headache disorders.
