This is the sixth UK ILAE (International League Against Epilepsy) EEG course combined with the Seizure Semiology Course. The aim is to provide an EEG course for non-neurophysiologists that teaches the basic principle of EEG interpretation, clinical settings in which a routine EEG will provide useful information and those in which it will not, and recognition of different seizure types and accompanying EEG changes.
The course is designed primarily for neurologists and paediatric neurologists (trainees and consultants), but would also be of interest to intensivists, learning disability psychiatrists, GPs with specialist interest in epilepsy and Epilepsy Nurse specialists who commonly encounter epilepsy in their practice. We will assume no prior knowledge of EEG, but those with some experience of EEG will also find this a useful refresher course, and tutorial groups will be matched on experience. Read moreâ€¦
The fee includes Thursday and Friday night accommodation (B&B), lunches and a course dinner on Thursday evening.
Feedback from previous attendees:-
"One of the best course on any subject that I have ever attended in 10 years."
"Excellent course materials and visuals"
"Over 3 days a real tour de force. Many thanks, perfect food , company and setting"
"Well organised and structured course would definitely recommend to my trainee colleagues"
"Semiology day was the best but was probably more clearer due to the base that was made on first 2 days of EEG teaching. Well planned and designed course. Simple identifying of EEG â€“ Normal to Abnormal and seizure semiology and video EEG"
"This course is outstanding.It truly enabled me to read EEG. I have to say it was above my expectations. The standard of hospitality (rooms, food) was exceptional"
Please note that all applications are vetted before acceptance, and confirmed only on receipt of payment. The number of attendees at this meeting is limited to 40.
Applications will be screened by the Course Directors who feel that, as places are limited, it is important to target delegates who will benefit most from this highly regarded course. In general the EEG in clinical practice section is primarily concerned with adult medicine/intensive care, although there are sections on paediatric EEG, and seizures seen in children. The paediatric epilepsy syndromes are not covered in detail.â€¨
Places will be allocated in order of receipt of application with payment. The course fee is non-refundable.
ILAE non-consultant members may be eligible for a bursary towards the cost of the course. Please inquire directly to http://ilaebritish.org.uk
