In this meeting, you will hear speakers from around the World, experts in their fields, discussing transient loss of consciousness. The day will cover the detailed management of the condition including 'how to' sessions on making a diagnosis, investigations and treatments. Complex scenarios, surprisingly common in clinical practice, will be presented. Finally, the challenges of developing services in different settings will be reviewed so that delegates feel able to begin to develop services of their own.

Programme Director: Dr Nicholas Gall
