The aim of Ataxia training days is to increase awareness of the ataxias among healthcare professionals. These events are open to a variety of different healthcare professionals, from neurologists to physiotherapists, with a typical training day attracting over 70 attendees from various backgrounds. A wide range of topics are presented by medical professionals with different areas of expertise, in subjects such as genetic counselling, diagnosis, management and physiotherapy for example.
