Functional Neurological Disorders Masterclass

This one-and-a-half day interactive course will allow clinicians to gain knowledge and practical skills in Functional Neurological Disorders (FND).

In this workshop, Dr Alex Lehn will commence by outlining contemporary, evidence-based theory and management of FND. Small group sessions will provide an opportunity to consolidate skills. Clinical scenarios using trained simulated patients will allow participants to practice diagnosis, management, and difficult conversations in a confidential setting. The workshop will be tailored to best meet participants' individual needs.

The workshop will be delivered by an inter-professional team with extensive experience in effectively managing FND patients. There will be opportunities to network with this team and other guests.
