ILAE Irish Chapter (IEL) president Dr Daniel Costello and the ILAE Council are happy to announce the 2019 Expert Speakers’ Day. This meeting is an educational platform for all those working with patients with epilepsy (medical, nursing, research and community support). There is a well-balanced selection of both national and international speakers all of whom are experts in the field of epilepsy and related disciplines. This year, there will be presentations covering practical and clinical epilepsy aspects including diagnosis, syndrome recognition (epilepsy and genetics) and indeed epilepsy management. There will be some presentations with emphasis on more recent epilepsy related research with relevance to clinical practice and management and indeed some exploration of some uncommonly visited areas of paediatric epilepsy. There is a highly anticipated debate, the topic of which is very practical relating to acute management of seizures and is actually born out of discussions at the last 2018 meeting!


The meeting will open at 08.30 for Registration and will conclude at 17.00. To view the detailed programme for the ILAE Expert Day please click the link to follow ILAE 2019 Programme
