This workshop aims to standardize spasticity training, education, and curriculum in residency and fellowship programs across the country and ensure that the next generation of physiatrists are trained with the highest standard of spasticity knowledge and practice as they begin to treat patients. Workshop sessions will focus on the science of spasticity including new research findings, emerging therapies to improve the quality of life for patients with spasticity, and strategies for medical educators who teach future physiatrists in spasticity management.
