PROGRAMME

The programme on Saturday comprises a series of plenary style lectures focusing on Diagnosis & Investigations and Medical Management of epilepsy.
The programme on Sunday allows the opportunity to expand into more specialised areas of interest via a series of parallel sessions in the morning and you will be able to select those sessions which you particularly wish to attend during the registration process.
The Sunday afternoon programme returns to the plenary style lecture focusing on Surgical Management.

All of the sessions on both days will include a moderated Q&A to enable you to raise your own questions directly with the speakers.
