The BPNA is the professional organisation for doctors who specialise in the care of children with neurological disorders. Building on our success to date, we are working jointly with the International League Against Epilepsy to roll-out face-to-face course for high level health workers in LMIC countries to raise the standards of care for children with epilepsy.
Epilepsy is a chronic neurological, non-communicable disease, affecting 50 million people worldwide. Of these, 80% are in LMIC. Approximately 75% of epilepsies are treatable, however in LMIC, 50-75% are not properly treated beause there is insufficient recognition of the symptoms of epilepsy. That's where this project comes in.
You will be:
- identifying and applying for funding to run educational events in LMIC;
- developing the project plan in liaison with the in-country doctors, to ensure it will be successful and sustainable;
- going with the UK team to train doctors in country over 3-days to deliver Paediatric Epilepsy Training.
