Course Overview

Essential tremor is the most common form of tremor. It can be stressful and embarrassing for patients, and can potentially lead to disabilities. The diagnosis of ET is based on clinical findings, as there are no laboratory tests to confirm the presence of ET. Therefore, it is imperative for healthcare professionals to know the differences among the various types of tremor and the possible causes so patients can be managed appropriately. Although many medications and other non-drug treatments have been evaluated for ET, propranolol and primidone remain first-line therapy. There are also several lifestyle tips that should be discussed with patients to help them cope with ET. Healthcare professionals should be familiar with ET, various treatment options, and lifestyle tips to help patients with this chronic condition.
