there will be a formal debate and small group workshops and a session devoted to ‘Hot Topics’ (chosen in the six weeks before the course).  

Expert to Expert: Epilepsy (previously called PET3) has been designed primarily for paediatric neurologists but would also be relevant to paediatricians who are providing tertiary epilepsy services.

These courses aim to cover the whole spectrum of childhood epilepsy over a 4-year period.  This seventh course will be a series of updates, controversies and workshops covering the themes of:  epilepsy surgery, neonatal seizures, status epilepticus and EEG.

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

This course provides CPD points for Consultant Paediatric Neurologists and is therefore appropriate for:

•Consultant Paediatric Neurologists

•SpRs in Paediatric Neurology in their final year of training

•Consultants responsible for tertiary level care of children with epilepsy 
 
This course is strictly for consultant paediatric neurologists and paediatric neurology trainees about to take up consultant paediatric neurology posts.  We do hope you will find the other BPNA courses of interest.  We recommend the epilepsy unit of the BPNA distance learning course for those Consultant Paediatricians who wish to further their knowledge of the childhood epilepsies after completing PET123 & EEG
