EEG in status epilepticus and on the intensive care unit

Date: Saturday 6th April 2019

Venue: Institute of Neurology, 33 Queen Square, London, WC1N 3BG

Registration fee: £150.00

Link: www.ilaebritish.org.uk/events/eeg-in-status-epilepticus-and-on-the-intensive-care-unit

Who the course is aimed at: Trainee and consultant doctors in the field of clinical neuroscience,  electrophysiological technicians.

Overview: The interpretation of EEG both in status epilepticus and on the intensive care unit is notoriously difficult, and yet there are few settings in which EEG is not more important, and both are settings in which the skilful use of EEG can make an enormous difference to clinical outcomes. Furthermore, recording in the intensive care unit carries problems not encountered in the normal EEG recording laboratories. Debate rages about the how much and how often EEG should be performed and which techniques are optimal. This is an area where practice varies quite considerably in different units and different countries. This teaching course is aimed at all doctors treating patients with status epilepticus and/or patients in intensive care settings, and also for EEG technologists. The emphasis is on providing practical guidance for patient management in these clinical settings and practical advice in different clinical situations. The course is taught by a distinguished international faculty who give their experience of practice in Europe and the USA as well as in Britain.

Botulinum toxin-A as an Adjunct to Paediatric Upper Extremity Rehabilitation

Date: Wednesday 15 May 2019 08:45 - Thursday 16 May 2019 13:00

2.     Venue: The Children’s Trust, Tadworth Court, Tadworth, KT20 5RU

3.     Cost: £340 per delegate

Hosted by Dr Brian Hoare, a Paediatric Occupational Therapist at Monash Children’s Hospital, Melbourne, Australia, this 1.5-day training course will focus on the rationale for using Botulinum toxin-A (BoNT-A) as an adjunct to upper limb rehabilitation in children with neurological impairment. Using the latest evidence from scientific literature, combined with over 18 years clinical experience in the use of upper limb BoNT-A, day 1 of this course will assist clinicians to make sense of who, why and when to consider the use BoNT-A as an adjunct to evidence-based upper limb intervention. Day 2 will involve the practical application of this knowledge. Participants will be actively involved in the assessment of a range of children with upper limb muscle overactivity and in the formulation of treatment plans. Detailed course notes and reference material will be provided.

Early bird delegate places are available for this course when booked before Friday 1 February 2019.
