Epilepsy: Finding Help

L-Epilessija: Kif insibu l-għajnuna

2018 National Epilepsy Conference

“Epilepsy: Finding Help”, has been chosen to be the theme of this year’s national conference of the Caritas Malta Epilepsy Association.  The conference is being held in conjunction with the Department of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, University of Malta. The conference, which will convene at the Dolmen Resort Hotel on Saturday 10 March 2018, will highlight practical aspects of how and where to seek help for proper epilepsy diagnosis and treatment. There are over 4,000 persons who have been diagnosed with epilepsy in Malta and Gozo. Epilepsy is often a hidden medical condition which requires several varying medical and support services and it can greatly affect a person’s social and personal life. We are honoured that the conference will be opened by HE Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, President of Malta. Among the speakers will be Prof Dorothee Kasteleijn, Netherlands. We also have several distinguished local speakers such as Dr. Josanne Aquilina, Dr. Doriette Soler, Dr. Edith Said, Dr. John Farrugia, as well as also interactive workshops.


This conference will be of specific interest to persons with epilepsy and their families, educators, teachers and LSAs and various health care professionals and students (doctors, pharmacists, nurses etc) who work with persons with epilepsy. We are sure that this conference will be of great interest to all the participants and the interactive session will stimulate a great deal of discussion.  We would like to thank you for your continuing support and interest. You will find the programme and an application form for this conference  when you follow the link: CMEA – Conference 2018The cost has been kept at a minimum of €30 per person, lunch and coffee breaks included. There is a limited number of seats, so apply early to avoid disappointment.
