Thanks to the charisma and professional awareness of Dr Beniczky and Dr Kharytonov, the event had a warm and friendly atmosphere, with discussions and an active exchange of thoughts and experiences among all the participants. We are very pleased that 85% of participants recognized the course as extremely useful for their professional development and practical use in their daily work. It should be noted course participants earned 12 European CME credits.

This is not the first event of the Ukrainian League Against Epilepsy aimed at exchanging experience with leading European specialists: in 2016-2017 courses were conducted on EEG in epileptology with the participation of Professor Walter van Emde Boas (Netherlands), Chair of the ILAE Taskforce on Distance Education.
