This virtual symposium features opportunities to gain insights from ILAE experts, learn more about current best practices, and understand how the pandemic will likely affect how we support and manage patients with epilepsy into the future. It is structured to give you maximum opportunities for engagement, with three distinct components:

  1. Pre-symposium case exercise
When you register, you will be asked about your experiences with COVID-19 and epilepsy, and what you would like to learn. You will then be directed to an interactive patient case, where you progress from clinical examination to diagnosis and treatment.
  1. Virtual symposium
Panel discussions and brief presentations will be interspersed with opportunities for you to pose questions to the speakers and prompt discussion amongst the panellists on the best approaches to clinical care during the pandemic.
  1. Post-symposium microlearnings
Following the symposium, you will receive self-paced online microlearning modules to further help you design the best strategy for supporting and managing your patients during this pandemic.
