Exeter Ataxia Training Day: Latest developments in diagnosis and treatment of the ataxias

Ataxia is an umbrella term for a range of progressive neurological conditions that affect 10,000 people in the UK. Individually, each type of ataxia is a very rare condition, meaning that there is a lack of awareness across the healthcare world. To combat this, Ataxia UK is teaming up with their Exeter Branch and ataxia healthcare specialists from across the UK to deliver a local Ataxia Training Day. This seminar is open to any interested healthcare professional working within one of a wide variety of fields. Attendees will learn valuable ways in which to care for people with ataxia; we are also applying for  CPD accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians.

The agenda

The seminar will be held on Friday 7 July at the prestigious Met Office in Exeter. Registration and light refreshments will start at 09:00am, with talks and Q&A's running from 9.30am to 16:00.

Speakers include  Jon Marsden, Professor of rehabilitation at Plymouth University, Dr Paola Giunti, Head neurologist and researcher at the specialist ataxia clinic in London, and many more. The day will also feature two patient speakers, who will share their experience of living with the condition. You can view the full event schedule here
