"Looking Beyond COVID-19: The Future of Neurological Care"

As part of World Brain Day on July 22nd, our colleagues in the Neurological Alliance of Ireland (NAI) are hosting a webinar focused on neurological healthcare post-pandemic. 

While the last number of months has been characterised by challenges for our health service, there has also been a lot of invaluable insights gained as to how our health and neurological services can operate in a post pandemic era.

The webinar will involve input from experts, stakeholders and Epilepsy Ireland will also be contributing to the webinar through our CEO, Peter Murphy.

The webinar is open to everyone and if you would like to attend, please see details below:
