Joint British and Danish ILAE British Advanced Epilepsy Meeting: Channelopathies and Neurosurgery

The Scandic Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark

9 - 10 May 2019

This two-day meeting of the British and Danish ILAE branches addresses two topics of advanced epileptology: epilepsy surgery and channelopathies. Experts in these fields will review the state of the art of these rapidly developing areas. Case presentations will help to relate new knowledge in clinical practice.

Following the meeting, participants will be able to:

  • Logos of the British Branch and the Danish Epilepsy Society
    Comprehend risks and benefits of epilepsy surgery
  • Identify patients who need to be evaluated for epilepsy surgery
  • Understand the importance of the multidisciplinary approach in presurgical evaluation
  • Integrate novel diagnostic and surgical techniques in presurgical evaluation
  • Comprehend the importance of channelopathies in patients with epilepsy
  • Identify patients in whom genetic testing for channelopathies is indicated
  • Use precision medicine in treatment of patients with channelopathies


A talented faculty will be delivering a brilliant programme. You can find details here
