ESA Clinical and ANZAN EEG Course 2022
In 2022 the ANZAN and ESA will hold the Annual Clinical Epilepsy and EEG Courses. The Clinical Epilepsy Course and EEG Course are intended for neurology trainees but practising neurologists and epileptologists will find them both instructive and a good update. Registrants may elect to attend one or both courses. Both courses will be run as virtual events via Zoom.
The Clinical Epilepsy Course is a one-day, case-based workshop focusing on the practical management of paediatric and adult patients with epilepsy. Participants will discuss each case in small groups under the leadership of an epileptologist, followed by a short didactic summary by the presenter. The 2022 course will focus on common clinical problems faced by doctors caring for patients with epilepsy in the hospital setting.
The EEG Course is held over two days and provides a theoretical and practical background to the reading and reporting of routine adult and paediatric EEG. The format consists of seven 90 minute sessions, each starting with a 30 minute didactic lecture followed by a 60 minute, small group, active-participation tutorial where EEG examples will be demonstrated and discussed under the direction of an experienced EEG tutor. Topics include basic technical aspects of EEG, the normal awake and asleep EEG, and epileptiform and non-epileptiform abnormalities in adults and children. In 2022, as in previous years, the course will include two lectures and tutorial sessions on EEG in the Intensive Care Unit and Ictal EEG. These will run in parallel with the main ANZAN EEG course and be available to neurology trainees who have previously attended the course and neurologists.
The ESA and ANZAN are grateful for the generous sponsorship provided once again by UCB.
