EPNS Cambridge Master Class 2018
When to start; when to stop. The dilemmas of advanced medical technology in paediatric neurology
The EPNS masterclasses were instituted in 2015 to address some of the dilemmas of practice in the 21st Century. Paediatric Neurology is a rapidly developing specialty: new healthcare technologies promise outcomes unthinkable a few years ago. But what is possible is not always what is appropriate. When do we start advanced treatments, or decide not to, or that the time has come to stop? Who has a say in these decisions, and how should disagreements be managed? Do attitudes to these issues differ between countries and if so what does this teach us?
EPNS Annual Report 2017

Research and Science
The main role of the EPNS Research and Scientific Committee is to advise on the scientific programme of the EPNS congress which is held biennially. In addition they provide guidance for symposia or sessions organised, or co-organised, by the EPNS within scientific meetings of other societies. Another important activity of the EPNS Research and Scientific Committee is the development of a European Research Conference in Paediatric Neurology, held every two years.
Honorary membership is for persons who the society wishes to honour for outstanding distinction in the field of paediatric neurology. Honorary membership is the highest honour which the EPNS can give and it recognises an exceptional contribution at international level to the field of paediatric neurology.
Education & Training
The EPNS has a programme of training courses to offer fellows and (young) paediatric neurologists the opportunity to learn paediatric neurology at a level prescribed by the Syllabus of the EPNS, to meet experts in the field and to exchange knowledge and personal experience. These are two-day courses at a location that can be easily reached at a relatively low cost. There will be a written examination at the end of the course. Because of the interactive character of the course, there is an upper limit of around 75 participants.
