Join leading experts at this in-person event discussing developments in the prevention, treatment, and further study of painful neuropathies.
In the UK, individuals over 55 have a 1 in 10 chance of being affected by peripheral neuropathy, with diabetes being the leading cause*. Treatments for painful neuropathies depend largely on the individual, focusing on the type of symptoms, nerve damage and location specific to the patient.
Building on our inaugural masterclass in painful neuropathies; this evening programme will cover the most recent clinical developments in emerging therapies, hear from a patient, who will share their first hand experience with receiving accessible treatments, and reflect on what experts anticipate will be available in the future.
