The ERN-RND is a European Reference Network established by the EU to support patients and families affected by rare neurological diseases (RND) which requires much specialised knowledge, treatment, and resources.



The 3rd ERN-RND Winter School in collaboration with EPNS is dedicated to rehabilitation issues in patients with symptoms of a rare neurological disease. It is an opportunity for young neurologists/residents who are interested in rare neurological disorders to receive in-depth training from internationally-recognized rare neurological disease experts.

Validated assessment and outcome measures for adults and children are discussed, as well as a variety of (advanced) treatment options for spastic paresis, primary dystonia and ataxia. In hands-on sessions in small groups, different therapeutic techniques will be demonstrated. All participants are invited to contribute to the Winter school programme by submitting an appropriate case. The most meaningful/adapted ones will be attributed to an oral discussion session. This will give the participants the possibility to exchange their ideas and to discuss difficult cases.
