During this webinar you will learn: 

  • How to correctly identify the most common acute neurological presentations to ED and on the medical take  
  • How to manage acute neurological presentations, including how to investigate and when to refer  
  • How to recognise common neurological emergencies and how to treat them safely and effectively
