Course summary Course summary

The neurological emergency is notoriously difficult to work up quickly in practice; performing a logical examination, checking all responses and reflexes without recourse to a textbook can seem daunting.

Course description Course description

This course will offer every first opinion practitioner a simple approach to give you confidence that you aren’t missing the obvious. There will be plenty of opportunities to talk to the experts about challenging cases, including refractory seizures, distinguishing movement disorders from orthopaedic cases, peripheral versus central vestibular diseases and spinal conditions.

Registration will open at 09.30, with the course starting at 10.00. The course will finish at 16.30.

Please note - Early bird rate applies to bookings made more than eight weeks in advance of the course date. If you want to book three courses for the price of two please call Jessica Wachtel on 020 7908 6336. The three for two offer can only be used with standard member pricing.
