OBJECTIVES

International Expert to Expert has been designed primarily for paediatric neurologists and others who are seeing children with epilepsy at a tertiary level. This meeting provides an excellent opportunity to listen to international expert lectures and then discuss topics and approaches with your peers in small workshops. This course is for all paediatric neurologists, both those for whom epilepsy is not necessarily their area of sub-speciality expertise and for epilepsy specialists.

This meeting brings the expertise of large international meetings to a small friendly forum.  It is especially designed to provide the opportunity to share expertise with your peers in a relaxed productive environment.  The programme also provides time for networking and informal dicussions with colleagues. 

The programme will include lectures from eminent international and UK faculty.
