About this event

  • Date and time Mon 10 May 2021 from 12:30pm to 5:40pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Clinical Neurosciences, Palliative Care

This live stream will explore how healthcare professionals can better manage the large group of patients who have neurological disorders at the end of life. 

Delegates will be updated on current ideas on symptom management in Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.

These patient palliative care needs differ from other patient groups and can be complex. There are a number of initiatives that have been developed including novel tools and rating scales that will be discussed and examined. 

Speakers from palliative and neurological backgrounds will present on their areas of expertise in what promises to be an interesting educational day providing pragmatic clinical help for clinicians. 

Event topics to be covered:

  • The palliative and end-of-life needs of patients with common neurological illnesses
  • Detail certain symptoms patients with movement disorders, stroke, multiple sclerosis and stroke may experience and how these might be managed 
  • Treatment options when neurological difficulties (e.g. seizures) occur at the end of life 
  • Share research insights and their practical applicability for advance care planning 
  • New tools to assess neurological patients near the end of life 
  • Techniques for approaching these topics in consultations 

This is a live stream event that can be accessed online. You can book the in-person version of this event that will take place at The Royal Society of Medicine.
