Neurological disorders are very common in paediatric practice. The
Neurology Update aims to provide paediatricians with the skills to
address some of the most common and chronic neurological problems.
With the help of videos , case histories, historical vignettes and
management tips from experts, we aim to provide a fun environment
to learn and revise knowledge. The day will cover neurological
problems, such as headache, presentations of brain tumours and
how to recognise and manage functional neurological disorders. The
now frequently asked question about the use of cannabis derivatives
for the treatment of epilepsy will also be addressed. Time has been
set aside to discuss interesting and difficult cases.
This Update forms part of the successful series of annual professional
development opportunities presented by the TY Nelson Department of
Neurology and Neurosurgery at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
