Under the direction of the Regional Neurology Department Head and the Medical Director for the sector, the neurologist focuses on health and illnesses of the nervous system.
Neurologists provide care for patients with diseases of the nervous system, including conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junctions and skeletal muscles. Patients with neurological conditions are often disabled with illnesses that affect their identity and independence.
Neurologists diagnose and manage the care of patients with diseases affecting the nervous system. They gather information from the patient’s history and physical examination in order to locate the neurological lesion. They integrate those clinical findings with the results of paraclinical investigations of the nervous system, including neuroimaging and electrodiagnostic testing, to determine the cause of acute or chronic neurological conditions.
The neurologist is also required to take part in research activities in their field of practice.
The neurologist takes an active part in the teaching activities in their department, in close collaboration with the Centre de formation médicale du Nouveau-Brunswick.
