From Functional Neurological Disorders to Stroke Rehabilitation

11 October 2018 - , Edinburgh

We are all familiar with the patient with a functional disorder. The patient is distressed and disabled but what can we possibly offer them? During this meeting we hope to improve our understanding as well as practical approaches to these seemingly intractable problems.

A quote from Prof Jon Stone, Consultant Neurologist Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences Edinburgh:

" For most of the 20th century, the patient with a functional disorder has often been a persona non grata in the neurology service, a patient with a disease to be excluded but not ultimately of interest to the neurologist. These disorders are the second commonest reason for an outpatient neurology consultation after headache. Patients with these disorders have been found to be as disabled as and more distressed than outpatients with corresponding disease.The difficulty of differentiating genuine functional disorders of the voluntary motor system from malingering, combined with fears of misdiagnosis, are 2 of the main reasons why these patients have so often occupied a no-man's land between neurology and psychiatry."

At this seminar, Prof Jon Stone will be speaking along with other distinguished speakers including Dr Ranjan Sanyal, stroke physician, Dr Alastair Dobbin, GP together with Dr Sheila Ross, health psychologist using Positive mental Training, Pauline Halliday stroke unit OT, Dr Jason Price, neuropsychologist, Dr Paul Molyneux, Neurologist, Dr Devin Terhune PhD, Prof Charles Warlow, Medical Neurology and Prof Alan Carson, neuropsychiatry.
