As part of Brain Infections Global (An NIHR Global Health Research Group on Improving the Management of Acute Brain Infections) we have been establishing the highly successful NeuroID Course internationally. The Neurological Infectious Diseases Course is an internationally renowned 2-day CPD course aimed at clinicians of all grades (including medical students) working in Adult and Paediatric Neurology, Infectious Diseases, Acute Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Medical Microbiology who want to update their knowledge and improve their skills. The course aims to cover all the common and important neurological infections, as well some rarer conditions, with the emphasis very much on practical approaches to the problems encountered on wards and in outpatients clinics.
The Liverpool NeuroID course will take place in Blantyre, Malawi, on 16th and 17th July 2024. Further details to follow.
