WNU 2024

WFN Digital Neurology Update (WNU 2024)

On Thursday 26 and Friday 27 September 2024, the first WFN Neurology Update (WNU) 2024 will take place. This is a virtual 2-day meeting, which will give an update on the most prevalent neurological diseases in the morning, and add teaching courses in the afternoon. It will be virtual, and can be accessed either live or upon request. 

This commitment for a neurology update is new, and also serves to fill the gap between the biennial World Congresses of Neurology (WCNs). As at the WCN, the WFN will continue virtual access to our meetings, as the reach of the WFN meetings has increased and reached 132 countries at the most recent WCN XXVI, which was both in-person and virtual.

Our program includes thorough updates on crucial neurological topics such as stroke, epilepsy, movement disorders, headache, multiple sclerosis, and neuromuscular diseases. 

We are committed to making WNU 2024 accessible to all, including low and middle-income countries, ensuring that as many people as possible can benefit from the latest neurological insights and advancements.

See you online, 26-27 September 2024!




Diagnosing Autonomic Dysfunction at Bedside

Teaching course tailored to enhance your diagnostic acumen and treatment strategies.

Here is what you can expect to learn:

  • Autonomic Assessment of Transient Loss of Consciousness: presented by Alessandra Fanciulli (Austria), this segment explores the crucial approaches for assessing patients who experience transient losses of consciousness, identifying potential underlying autonomic irregularities that may guide both diagnosis and therapeutic strategies.
  • Sudomotor Dysfunction - Differential Diagnoses and Management: Anne Pavy le Traon (France) will guide you through the complexities of diagnosing sudomotor dysfunction, offering insights into differential diagnoses and contemporary management strategies that can be applied in clinical practice.
  • Small Fiber Neuropathy - Clinical Hints and Workup: Concluding the course, Astrid Juhl J. Terkelsen (Denmark) will discuss the pivotal clinical indicators and diagnostic workup for small fiber neuropathy, providing valuable guidelines to enhance patient care.

Transforming Dementia Care

Dr Suvana Alladi, renowned expert from India, will guide us through the latest advancements in understanding and managing dementia, including:
