What is the Summit?
The Prevent21 Summit provides a valuable opportunity for research, clinical and advocacy leaders to come together to tackle epilepsy deaths and drive meaningful change. 21 years ago, this community identified the problem. This Summit will focus on what can, and is already being done now to tackle epilepsy deaths, coming together as a community to define how we can collaborate to create significant change.
This first Summit will be held this November 2018 in Oxford, with the theme - Time to Listen.
The aims of the 2018 Prevent21 Summit are to:
- Highlight learnings on need, gaps and progress in relation to epilepsy deaths
- Explore key recommendations from panels and summit participants
- Provide opportunities for multi-stakeholder collaboration to tackle epilepsy deaths
Here is a sneak peek of how the event is shaping up -
In attendance, we will have around 50 representatives from a wide spectrum of clinicians, policy makers, epilepsy organisations and medical professionals. Just to name a few:
We are hoping the outcomes from the Summit will be published in a special supplement in the Journal 'Epilepsy and Behaviour', following the event.
More information and updates on this event, will be published in due course.
