PRETOLA offers a range of training courses that can be tailored to meet the needs of your staff and operational context.

 

This FREE three-month virtual training is ideal for clinicians in Low to Middle Income Countries (LMICs) looking to stay abreast of latest research in epilepsy management and improve their patients’ outcomes.

 

This fifth edition of the EAMC offers a truly multidisciplinary approach to epilepsy management, featuring specialist sessions on Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy and Paediatric Epilepsy. Sessions will be delivered by leading international specialists in the field of epilepsy.

 

Our special session on SUDEP will explore the assessment and management of associated risks to prevent SUDEP and the ethical question of when is the right time to discuss SUDEP with the patient, families and their carers? What barriers exists, including stigma and cultural factors that prevents discussing SUDEP with people with epilepsy and their families?

 

The course content is highly engaging and tailored to reflect the clinical, cultural, and socio-economic contexts in LMICs. Participants from previous editions of the EAMC have benefited from opportunity to network with other participants and share best practice when caring for people with epilepsy.
