Learning Objectives
1.  Recognize signs and symptoms that are suggestive of a diagnosis of Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension (NOH).
2.  Conduct and thorough and comprehensive diagnostic evaluation for patients who may have NOH.
3.  Develop an individualized treatment plan for patients with NOH.

Program Description
NOH is a form of orthostatic hypotension that results from autonomic dysfunction, commonly afflicting patients who have conditions that impair the autonomic nervous system. It may be a key contributor to falls, as well as their sequelae, including diminished quality of life, reduced daily functioning, and decreased independence. Yet many patients with nOH are not appropriately diagnosed and treated for their condition, worsening its disease burden. Here, we present a concise yet high-level overview on nOH, designed to educate clinicians on this condition as well as to optimize management from diagnosis through treatment.
