British Paediatric Neurology Association
Paediatric Epilepsy Training (PET) courses were developed by the British Paediatric Neurology Association to improve the diagnosis and management of children with epilepsies for general paediatricians, trainees and nurses. PET courses have run successfully in the UK since 2005 and have educated over 5,000 people. The BPNA is now making these courses available outside the UK and currently run courses in India, Nepal, Myanmar, Qatar, Dubai.
100 hour comprehensive, clinically based course, delivered via the internet The largest group of conditions studied will be epileptic seizure disorders/the epilepsies. The overall aim is to provide you with an understanding of the physiological basis of seizure disorders and their epidemiology, along with the detailed clinical knowledge necessary to manage children with seizure disorders to an advanced level.
By the end of the Unit you should:
- be adept at using the International Diagnostic Scheme
- be able to describe the electroclinical features of the different types of epileptic seizures
- be able to identify common and not so common epilepsy syndromes
- have a good knowledge of the various diseases and condition in which epileptic seizures may occur
You will consider the role of EEG, neuroimaging and other investigations in the evaluation of children with seizure disorders. A number of sections deal with treatment issues, including antiepileptic drugs, epilepsy surgery and less conventional / well established treatment modalities, such as vagal nerve stimulation. The effect of epilepsy on the individual, including co-morbidities will also be considered.

Teaching Neurology to Primary Care Physicians in Bolivia
Considering that the number of neurologists in Bolivia is much lower than the rate per capita recommended by the WHO, we believe that it is essential to provide the basic tools for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders to primary care physicians and family doctors. For the above reasons we decided to provide training on basic concepts of methodology and epidemiology and on the most frequent neurological diseases such as stroke, epilepsy, dementia, headache, and central nervous system infections.
