During this session, Dr Andrew Larner, Consultant Neurologist, Liverpool, will discuss the retrospective neurological diagnosis: the ontological, the epistemic and the ethical. Mr Francis Wells, Consultant Cardiac Surgeon, Oxford, will present the Representations of disease in medieval and early modern European art and literature.

Participants will be able to:

  • Have a better understanding of the relevance of neurological diagnosis to patient care
  • Understand the importance of historical method in contemporary practice, especially as related to art and literature
