  • Organised by Paediatrics and Child Health

This is the first part of a two-part webinar series that will provide an overview of both normal and abnormal brain development across a wide range of topics that are relevant to anyone working with infants, children and young people.

Join a panel of clinicians and academics who are experts in their fields. Topics covered will focus on the MDT management of common neurological conditions in childhood, including emergency presentations. At this webinar, expand your understanding of the normal brain development as a window and to understand what happens when things go wrong.

During this session, you will be able to:

  • Understand developmental 'red flags'
  • Develop an insight into common neurological conditions that present in childhood, including movement disorders and childhood epilepsy
  • Explore how cutting-edge neuroimaging techniques allow us to describe normal structural brain development
  • Gain insights into current topics in neuroimaging
  • Explore the MDT approach to managing children and adolescents with chronic neurodisability
  • Gain insight into what features of neurodevelopment are important to parents and young people
