Innsbruck, 16 th -17 th February 2017

Medizin Zentrum Anichstraße –Anichstraße 35, Innsbruck, Austria

EFAS warmly welcomes you to the EFAS School and Meeting 2017!

EFAS School:

Autonomic nervous system (ANS) disorders are common and more and more recognized as important subspecialty of neurology. Detailed knowledge on this important field is rather sparse especially among junior neurologists. Until recently there was no structured education for ANS disorders in Europe. To provide a structured curriculum, the European Federation of Autonomic Societies (EFAS) initiated the EFAS School. This education is both theoretical as well as “hands-on” training. International leading experts teach and discuss clinical autonomic function disorders on a problem-oriented basis. Discussions are motivated during the course to stimulate interactivity.

 

EFAS Meeting:

The EFAS meeting presents clinically relevant topics in autonomic nervous system research. Leading experts of their field present elaborate new knowledge on cardiovascular autonomic failure, sleep and epilepsy, Syncope and Postural orthostatic tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), genetic autonomic disorders, and botulinum toxin in autonomic disorders. Autonomic disorders are commonly found in many clinical conditions but sparsly recognized. This clinically oriented meeting will provide clinical guides through autonomic conditions.
