Upcoming Meetings
International Neurology and Rehabilitation Meeting (INEREM)
Wyndham Grand ─░stanbul Levent, Turkey
Jun 4 - 6, 2015



INEREM 2015 has been endorsed by World Federation for NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR)
and the World Federation of Neurology (WFN).

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is with great pleasure and honour that I am inviting you to the "International Neurology and Rehabilitation Meeting (INEREM)" which will be held on 4, 5, 6 of June 2015, in Istanbul.

Coming from different specialties such as Neurology, Rehabilitation medicine, and from different cultures and different health systems we all have the same objective: to improve the quality of life of our neurological patients.

This meeting will enable us to share our experience and to update our knowledge with a view to improve our clinical practice and consequently the treatment of our patients.

We have chosen to dedicate more time to intimate workshops in order to concentrate on the exchange of our experience. We have also set aside more time for clinical practice topics and also reserved a time for presentations about innovation and the future.

We have chosen a symbolic place where both Europe and Asia meet because we would like to facilitate meetings of different people involved in the care of neurological patients.

Istanbul has always been throughout history, and is still today, a meeting place of different cultures and religions. You will be able to discover the long and rich history of this magnificent city, not forgetting a vast gastronomic experience.

The organizers will always be available to help you both before and during the meeting and to demonstrate Turkish hospitality.

10th International Paediatric EMG Congress
Magdalene College Cambridge
Sep 9 - 11, 2015

The International paediatric EMG Congress returns to Cambridge to celebrate its 10th meeting. With the first meeting taking place in 1997 the popularity and quality of this unique course has increased meeting by meeting attracting a dedicated following and internationally acclaimed faculty.

The aim of all the meetings has been to equip the delegates with the skills and knowledge to perform paediatric EMG. Previous meetings based on lectures with only a few workshops had given delegates the knowledge of how paediatric EMG is performed but not the confidence that comes only with practice. To address this shortfall and influenced by the outstanding success of the recent International Meeting on stimulated single fibre EMG hosted in London earlier this year, the structure of the meeting is going to be primarily based around workshops. Working in groups of around eight delegates, each with a dedicated trainer, real clinical cases’ data will be presented and the delegates expected to interpret the findings using such skills as motor unit duration estimation, automatic analysis of the interference pattern, and skills in interpretation of single fibre data. The only missing element in this scenario is the actual collection of data from the children themselves.

These workshops will be preceded by dedicated lectures on different elements of paediatric EMG examination given by acknowledged experts in the field, such as engaging with children, recognition of patterns of peripheral neuropathy abnormality, the use of quantitative techniques and how to perform stimulation single fibre EMG.

No prior knowledge of paediatric EMG is needed to make attendance at this unique course worthwhile. In fact, clinicians with an interest in neuromuscular disease could gain a valuable insight into skills of their EMG colleagues, not only by interpreting results themselves but even by performing some of the tests such as stimulation single fibre EMG. Delegates will be grouped according to knowledge and experience and the pace of the analysis and training matched accordingly.

The course takes place at Magdalene College in its beautiful postgraduate centre with excellent accommodation on site. The fees include some meals, course materials, and the Gala dinner. Because of the international following a large proportion of the delegates are likely to be residential during the whole Congress.

Booking is open via the Addenbrooke’s Hospital postgraduate medical Centre website.
