About this event

  • Date and time Tue 26 Oct 2021 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Clinical Neurosciences

This webinar will provide you with a comprehensive understanding and increased awareness of the wide spectrum of medical conditions where an underlying dysfunction of small nerve fibres is the main cause or a main contributing factor.

Experts will examine conditions including ‘classical’ small fibre neuropathy, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (PoTS), fibromyalgia, ‘dry eye syndrome’, hyperactive bladder/interstitial cystitis, and bowel disorders. 

This is a multidisciplinary webinar suitable for (but not limited to) medical professionals in clinical neurosciences, urology, ophthalmology, coloproctology, gerontology and geriatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, orthopaedics, paediatrics, pain management, and cardiology. 

During this webinar speakers will cover:

  • How to recognise potential nerve fibre dysfunction in different medical conditions
  • The role of small nerve fibres in apparently disconnected pathologies
  • Methods to assess small fibre neuropathy

CPD learning applied.
