European Conference on Youth Mental Health: From Continuity of Psychopathology to Continuity of Care @ San Servolo Congress Center
Dec 16 – Dec 18 all-day

Website: www.youthmentalhealth2014.eu

Young people aged 10–24 years represent 27% of the world’s population, and up to 75% of mental disorders occur within 25 years (Kessler et al., 2007). If many mental disorders continue across different developmental stages, do mental health services guarantee continuity of care?  Unfortunately the current service configuration of distinct Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and Adult Mental Health Services (AMHS) is a barrier to providing continuity of care. For this reason, the current service configuration of CAMHS and AMHS has been described as the “weakest link in a system where it should be most robust” (McGorry, 2007). Therefore we need a new, evidence-based ‘youth mental health paradigm’: the STraMeHS Conference aims at raising awareness and improving mental health providers, policy makers, decision makers and health administrators’ knowledge about youth mental health and factors affecting this area. The event will also promote the development of integrated and continuous models of care and functioning of mental health services targeted to the specific needs of youth.

The International Stroke Conference is the world’s largest meeting dedicated to the science and treatment of cerebrovascular disease. This 2½-day conference features more than 1,500 presentations that emphasize basic, clinical and translational sciences as they evolve toward a more complete understanding of stroke pathophysiology with the overall goal of developing more effective prevention and treatment. Sessions in clinical categories will center on stroke community risk factors, emergency care, acute neuroimaging, endovascular and nonendovascular treatment, diagnosis, cerebrovascular occlusive disease, in-hospital treatment, and outcomes of stroke. Sessions in basic science categories focus on vascular biology in health and disease, experimental mechanisms and models, and basic and translational neuroscience of stroke recovery. Further specialized topics include rehabilitation and recovery, pediatric stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, nursing, preventive strategies, vascular cognitive impairment, aneurysm, subarachnoid hemorrhage and other neurocritical management, vascular malformations, and ongoing clinical trials. Cutting-edge presentations on these topics attract a wide range of healthcare professionals and investigators including adult and pediatric neurologists, neurosurgeons, neurointerventionalists, neuroradiologists and interventional radiologists, physiatrists, emergency medicine specialists, primary care physicians, nurses and nurse practitioners, rehabilitation specialists, physical, occupational, and speech therapists, pharmacists, and basic researchers spanning the fields of cerebrovascular function and disease.

Preceptorship on MRI in multiple sclerosis @ San Raffaele Scientific Institute
Feb 12 – Feb 13 all-day

Website: http://www.neurology.excemed.org/en/neurology/meetings/symposia/preceptorship-on-mri-in-multiple-sclerosis-1.html

MRI techniques are essential to making a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) especially at the very early stages of the disease. Moreover, in the everyday  clinical  setting  MR  markers  are  more  and  more  crucial  for treatment  choice  and  monitoring.  Innovative  imaging  techniques  are now available enabling new insights into the pathogenesis of MS and its functional consequences. In this context, specific training is mandatory to analyze and interpret MRI findings. The live educational preceptorship will provide learners with lectures given by world renowned experts in MR  in  MS  and  hands-on  training,  held  at  the  Neuroimaging  and Neuroimmunology Research Unit.

By attending this live educational course the learners will be able to:

  • Apply MR diagnostic criteria for diagnosing MS
  • Distinguish and rule out clinical conditions that can mimic MS at the MR scan
  • Summarize the novel functional and structural markers of disease severity obtained by advanced MRI techniques
  • Interpret MRI scans and estimate other relevant imaging outcomes

13th Congress of European Forum for Research in Rehabilitation – EFRR 2015 @ Marina Congress Center
May 6 – May 9 all-day

Website: www.efrr2015.org

The purpose of EFRR is to advance research and education in biopsychosocial aspects of rehabilitation. The outcomes of such research are implemented and disseminated with the aim of improving both the provision of social, vocational, health-care and rehabilitation services and the standards of practice in these services, for the benefit of people with disabilities.

The theme of the congress is “Being, Doing, Participating” referring to the WHO International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health. The congress is providing an arena with a wide spectrum of different fields in the rehabilitation research.

The congress will provide shared knowledge to be used in human health, new scientific research, and for the improvement of educational efforts in rehabilitation. We will concentrate in both scientific and practical issues. For further information, please visit the congress web site www.efrr2015.org
