This webinar will discuss how clinical history and the history of concepts of illness – illustrated by epilepsy – can add to a richer understanding of daily clinical encounters. The exchange between the patient and the doctor is central. In hospital practice we may have little opportunity to reflect on times when communication is difficult for clinical reasons.

Small vessel disease is recognised as a common pathology associated with ageing, but its variability in terms of imaging and outcomes makes dealing with and counselling affected patients challenging. Professor Hugh Markus is an authority on this topic and will discuss the latest findings and how genetics help us understand it better.
This webinar will:
- Describe the key underlying pathology of small vessel disease and its variants
- Understand recent advances in genetics of this condition
- Identify when and which investigations and interventions are appropriate
- Be able to counsel patients and families on the risk factors and prognosis
