A webinar about ERNs and Norway’s role on the international arena of rare disorders
In this webinar we are putting the spotlight on collaboration for rare disorders with a special focus on European Reference networks (ERN) and Norway’s role. Norway is already part of a few ERNs, but many more Norwegian health care providers are on their way into more networks. However, there are challenges ahead of us and we need to work together to solve them. One critical question is the accessibility of Clinical Patient Management System (CPMS) which currently is unavailable from Norwegian hospitals. In this webinar we will hear from participants with different experiences and perspectives on the ERNs. We hope you will join in and bring your questions to the speakers and to the panel at the end of the webinar. Hopefully we will be one step further towards contributing to well-functioning ERNs for the benefit of the rare disease population in Norway and Europe.
Reliable neuropathological work-up of epilepsy-associated brain lesions represents an important diagnostic value for the surgical management of patients with drug-resistant focal epilepsy. The international classification of epilepsies recognizes a large spectrum of brain lesions as potential predictors of disease progression and treatment response.
The 11th International Summer School for Neuropathology and Epilepsy Surgery is designed to enable participants to better recognize and classify various histopathological substrates of drug-resistant epilepsy. Topics related to the diagnosis and treatment of human focal epilepsies will be presented by internationally renowned faculty. Advanced hands-on histopathology training will be offered in small groups led by distinguished tutors who will review and discuss microscopy slides of selected cases with different staining protocols. Participants will also have the opportunity to present their own cases for discussion with the entire group. The workshop has been held in Germany, Brazil, USA and China since 2013, with the endorsement of the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE).
The main objective of the 7th edition of the Advanced Epilepsy Course Bridging Basic with Clinical Epileptology is to train attendees to improve the critical competencies necessary to design an effective research project/activity in the field of epilepsy.
