The MSE will be covered in future courses in more detail, but for now become acquainted with the MSE by clicking on the following links: This website provides a general description of the MSE: • UCSD's Practical Guide to Clinical Medicine, Charlie Goldberg, M.D. This website provides videos demonstrating each area of the MSE: • NeuroLogic Exam, University of Utah This website provides an example of a MSE with a patient. • Understanding the MSE, YouTube, 2011 For your assignment describe what information can be obtained from the MSE. Identify situations in which you would use the MSE. Finally, based on the information gained from the video with Glen (patient), what areas of concern do you see? What additional assessments would you conduct? What treatment recommendations would you make?
