The virtual event puts a spotlight on the advancements in treating neurological disorders. The three-day event, organised by Sidra Medicine in partnership with the Society for Research into Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida, will witness key speakers sharing their “insights and best practice methodologies to understand the epidemiology and mechanisms of neurological diseases, focusing on treatable neurological and neurosurgical disorders”.
The programme, according to the organisers, includes a series of lectures on “recent advances in diagnostic and therapeutic interventions that have helped improve the health outcomes of children living with chronic neurological and neurosurgical diseases”. Several physicians, surgeons, nurses, and allied health professionals will be attending the conference.
Organisers noted that the Paediatric Neuroscience Conference 2022 will be an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Category 1) as defined by the Ministry of Public Health’s Department of Healthcare Professions – Accreditation Section and is approved for a maximum of 13 hours. The event will also tackle the recent advances in the surgical management of treatable neurosurgical disorders in children including hydrocephalus and spina bifida, as well as the role of personalised medicine in neurological disorders in children.
The Paediatric Neuroscience Conference 2022 takes place three days after the hosting of the Precision Medicine and Functional Genomics Conference 2022 where researchers, healthcare professionals, policymakers, and community members from different countries will converge from today (September 23) until September 26 at St Regis Doha.
