ILAE BRITISH BRANCH
19th SpR Epilepsy Teaching Weekend
11-12 May 2024
We are delighted to announce that the 19th SpR Teaching Weekend will take place in person at the superb,
new Teaching and Learning Centre at Birmingham University.
We invite you to join us for this leading educational programme which will include a series of lectures, video sessions and informal seminars covering the most important areas of current clinical epilepsy practice.
Our speakers are all internationally recognised experts in their fields, creating a dynamic programme which has consistently attracted large audiences comprising Senior Registrars, Consultants and other specialists in the field of epilepsy. Feedback from previous attendees rates the Teaching Weekend as a “must attend” event for any registrar looking to advance to a consultant role in this field.
The programme will commence at 10:00 on Saturday 11 May and concludes at 15:45 on Sunday 12 May.
The course is made possible by educational grants from the Pharmaceutical Industry together with a modest delegate fee to cover the cost of the meeting, including accommodation at the 4-star Edgbaston Park Hotel.
We very much hope you will join us in Birmingham.
One of the best traditions in UK neurology has been the ILAE British Branch epilepsy teaching course.
This is one of the highlights of our teaching calendar, and has been the exemplar for our teaching programme which has helped bring generations of neurology trainees to the epilepsy community. This course covers all aspects of basic science, diagnosis, treatment and associated comorbidities, providing valuable help in planning how to manage epilepsy in general and in specialist clinics alike.
The ILAE British Branch 19th Specialist Registrar Epilepsy Teaching Weekend has applied for CPD accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians on the United Kingdom.
Certificates will be made available immediately after the conclusion of the meeting.
Epilepsy is the most common serious neurological disease in the UK and seizure disorders are seen frequently in both the neurology clinics and on the hospital wards. A sound grasp of the principles and pitfalls of epilepsy management is essential in order to diagnose and treat patients effectively and safely.
This weekend course delivers a comprehensive and contemporary approach to establishing a confident diagnosis, selecting and interpreting the most appropriate investigations, choosing the correct medical and surgical treatments and tailoring epilepsy management to specific populations such as the children, women and patients with intellectual disability.
