ILAE British Branch Clinical Epilepsy 1-Day Course for Junior Doctors

Venue: The Birmingham Conference and Events Centre, Birmingham, UK


Event Notes:

Course overview: In the UK, epilepsy affects around one in every 100 people. Every day, 87 people are diagnosed. The consequences of an epilepsy diagnosis are severe and wide-reaching. Diagnosis can result in the loss of education, independence, income, and employment. Often health professionals find it problematic to manage even the common presentations due to lack of exposure during their early training. The aim of the ILAE British Branch Clinical Epilepsy 1- Day Course is to provide an essential overview in epilepsy and its management in acute and community settings. The course takes the format of lectured style teaching, and the course content has been carefully tailored to cover a wide variety of topics essential to health professionals. Each topic is founded on the latest clinical evidence and presented in a practical manner including case discussions, which will expand knowledge of epilepsy presentations and improve management plans. There will be an opportunity to learn about anti-seizure medications and MRI and EEG interpretation skills. By the end of the course you will have gained a better understanding of the pathway of care and treatment of epilepsy.
