Event description

Description

Registration is now open for the first event in the 2018 Queen Square GP Seminar programme, hosted by Queen Square Private Healthcare and held in partnership with the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

For this inaugural event, consultant neurologists Dr Robert Simister and Dr Arvind Chandratheva will be providing a comprehensive update on stroke, one of the most common causes for neurological disability in the UK.

Over the last year, there have been a number of exciting trials which have prompted changes to the management of acute stroke, transient ischaemic attack, atrial fibrillation and patients with patent foramen ovale. In this interactive session, Dr Simister and Dr Chandratheva will provide a concise overview of the very latest literature, and discuss key topics for management in the community, addressing common questions including:

  • Which antiplatelet therapy should be used for which patient?

  • Is there a difference between the non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs)?

  • How can the 30-40% of patients who have unidentified causes for stroke be managed and what are the risks?

  • How can we manage 'funny turns', transient confusion and isolated vertigo?

This comprehensive session will conclude with a final update on the plan for TIA and stroke services for North Central London.

As always, registration for this event is free and certificates will be provided for CPD. Food and drink will be served at the lecture theatre from 17:45, prior to the seminar which will start at 18:45.

Please note that these sessions are designed for medical professionals and are not appropriate for patients or members of the general public.
