The annual congress of the European Academy of Neurology comes to Amsterdam this June. To mark the occasion, the European Federation of Neurological Associations is organising a Professionals and Public Meeting on Palliative Care.
National and International Experts will come together to explore a series of questions in relation to the palliative care of neurology patients, using examples from the fields of:
BRAIN TUMOUR, DEMENTIA , PARKINSON’S DISEASE and MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE
We are inviting patients, carers, representatives of patient organisations, health professionals, policy-makers and other interested parties to come along on the day.
WE WANT YOU TO BE PART OF THE DISCUSSION – HELPING US AND THE INVITED EXPERTS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS LIKE THESE:
· What are the palliative care needs of neurology patients?
· Do neurology patients have unique palliative care needs?
· How can palliative care be integrated into neurology practice?
· What skills do neurologists need to engage in palliative care?
· Where should future research and educations efforts be concentrated?
