PREVIEW: The 10th Practical Cognition Course

Conference details: October 12-13, 2017, Liverpool, UK.

The highly successful Practical Cognition Course will take place for the tenth year running on Thursday 12th to Friday 13th October 2017 at the Liverpool Medical Institution. This course is for Consultants and trainees in Neurology, Psychiatry, Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Medicine who want to develop their practical expertise in cognitive assessment and relate this to clinically relevant neuroscience.

There will be a practical introductory session to cognitive assessment followed by four sessions of case presentations discussing the assessment, diagnosis and management of common cognitive syndromes.

The course begins and ends with the patient. Case presentations will feature video material illustrating disorders that clinicians may encounter in daily practice. Each session will also include a talk from an invited expert, who will provide a framework for understanding the clinically relevant neuroscience.

This year’s programme will cover DISORDERS OF LANGUAGE, FRONTAL LOBE DISORDERS and SLEEP & COGNITION. Guest speakers include Jason Warren (UCL), Rhys Davies (Liverpool), and Kirstie Anderson (Newcastle).

The course is organised by Neurologists Tim Griffiths (Newcastle), Chris Butler (Oxford) and Andrew Larner (Liverpool), has been previously sponsored by the Guarantors of Brain, and will be accredited for CME points with the Royal College of Physicians (12 points last year).
