EPIPED-EEG Bologna 2020 - hybrid course

 

 

The EPIPED-EEG Course 2020 took place both in Bologna and online for the very first hybrid version of the course.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This event is endorsed by the EPNS and the ILAE

 

             

 

 


 

Physicians, even when not specialized in epilepsy, have to face new-onset potentially rare, complex or drug-resistant epilepsies. EEG and Video-EEG (VEEG) are always the first diagnostic tools with history acquisition and clinical examination. Analysis of the EEG and VEEG recordings guide both the prescription of other diagnostic investigations (neuroimaging, genetic screening) and the first treatment choices. Follow-up and treatment strategies also highly depend upon EEG and VEEG. 


These courses on interactive interpretation of EEG and VEEG patterns is developed specifically for child neurologists, neurophysiologists and pediatricians caring for children with epilepsy.


EPIPED-EEG Course EEG INTERPRETATION IN PEDIATRIC EPILEPSIES

The 2021 course includes training modules covering different aspects of the electroencephalography in generalized epilepsy and reflex epilepsy. 

All aspects of surface interictal and ictal EEG will be covered, including recognition of basic rhythms, morphological and clinical significance of interictal epileptiform abnormalities and syndrome-specific EEG patterns. 

Highly experienced mentors will lead the lessons: to privilege interaction each course will be limited to 40 participants. In addition, 5 additional inscriptions will be granted to neurophysiopathology technicians. 

 

The course is designed in the format of practical training modules. To facilitate interaction during EEG interpretation the learners will be matched in groups of maximum 6 per 2 mentors. 

Pre-acquired basic EEG knowledge if highly recommended, but if it will be necessary one basic group of 6 learners could be formed. 

 

Registration will be offered on a first-come first-served basis. 

 

EPIPED-EEG Course- Epilepsy Surgery Section

The 2021 course includes training modules covering different aspects of the electroencephalography in pediatric non-invasive presurgical evaluation. Other aspects of the presurgical evaluation, such as neuroimaging, will be carefully analyzed during the course.

Highly experienced mentors will lead the lessons: to privilege interaction each course will be limited to 40 participants. In addition, 5 additional inscriptions will be granted to neurophysiopathology technicians. 

The course is designed in the format of practical training modules. To facilitate interaction during EEG interpretation the learners will be matched in groups of maximum 6 per 2 mentors. 

Pre-acquired basic EEG knowledge if highly recommended, but if it will be necessary one basic group of 6 learners could be formed. 

 

Registration will be offered on a first-come first-served basis.

Attendance of both courses is highly recommended (discounted fees)
