GENERAL INFORMATION 

This is a practical two-day course  aimed at Consultant Paediatric Neurologists and specialists from throughout Europe, involved in either the diagnosis or management of these interesting disorders.
 
There will be particular emphasis on:
• How to assess these children in practical terms that can guide the clinician in a busy clinic.
• Diagnostic issues from simple home videos through to biochemical and genetic analysis.
• Classification of common movement disorders and identification of rarer ones.
• Practical difficulties with their management in terms of state of the art drug and therapeutic input, acute issues, as well as more practical issues around multi disciplinary and allied health professional support.
 
The course has been developed along the same lines as the very successful Paediatric Epilepsy Training programme and the course format will be immediately familiar to anybody who has attended the PET courses. It will be a mixture of both workshops and lectures, with interactive sessions allowing attendees to bring their own clinical experience to the group’s attention. Attendees will need to participate in the interactive and debate format of the course.
 
This course will complement the BPNA distance learning course unit 4: ‘Central motor deficits; congenital and acquired spinal cord disorders’ which is available to study online.
