Practical Cognition Course 2013

The highly successful Practical Cognition Course will take place for the sixth year running on Thursday 10th to Friday 11th October 2013 at the Research Beehive, Newcastle upon Tyne. This course is for consultants and trainees in neurology, psychiatry, neuropsychology and rehabilitation medicine who want to develop their practical expertise in cognitive assessment and relate this to clinically relevant neuroscience.

There will be a practical introductory session to cognitive assessment followed by four sessions of case presentations discussing the assessment, diagnosis and management of common cognitive syndromes. The course begins and ends with the patient. Case presentations will feature video material illustrating disorders that clinicians may encounter in daily practice. Each session will also include a talk from an invited expert, who will provide a framework for understanding the clinically relevant neuroscience.

This year’s programme will cover FRONTAL LOBE DISORDERS, TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY, LANGUAGE and FUNCTIONAL COGNITIVE SYMPTOMS. Guest speakers include Chris Kipps (Southampton), Stuart Anderson (Brighton and Sussex), Tom Kelly (Newcastle), Andrew Larner (Liverpool), Jon Stone (Edinburgh) and Jason Warren (UCL). The course is organized by neurologists Tim Griffiths (Newcastle) and Chris Butler (Oxford), sponsored by the Guarantors of Brain, and accredited for CME points with the Royal College of Physicians.
