Event description
All are welcome to join us for this informative virtual talk in which Dr Karen Thomas discusses fatigue in neurological conditions.

About this event

If you have a family member or colleague who has survived a stroke or living with Multiple Sclerosis, you may have heard of or can personify what fatigue is, in a neurological population. So what makes fatigue different for those with a neurological condition to the tiredness you experience after a long week at work? And what can you, our hospitals and our healthcare system do to help those experiencing one of the most common but also most frequently unmet needs for those with a neurological condition?
