Join us at this highly popular paediatric neurology LSP study day. In this webinar, you will gain a concise and practical overview of the paediatric neurology components of the new RCPCH Progress Level 2 Generic Syllabus. 

Topics covered will include stroke in childhood, paediatric headache and migraine, paediatric epilepsy (differential diagnosis, use of EEG and initiation of treatment), paediatric movement disorders, neurological causes of syncope, and acute encephalopathy in children. We will hear from a patient about their journey through the epilepsy surgery programme and the impact this has had on their life. And finally, there will be a careers session which will provide an introduction to exciting career opportunities accessed via paediatric neurology grid training.
