Advanced Practice Providers Session: Guidance on Common Clinical Questions Featured

Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) are an integral part of neuromodulation practices around the world, and it is important for their role to be supported through education in their field, training on application of their skill sets, and gaining insight on how to provide well-rounded care. The APP session of the scientific program aims to provide these tools.

Neuromodulation in Epilepsy: From Bench to OR to Outcomes

Neuromodulation treatments to treat drug-resistant epilepsy are expanding, including treatment paradigms that stimulate the brain directly to prevent or reduce seizures. With a growing number of options, several questions arise. What is the science behind brain stimulation in epilepsy, and how can animal models help us find new targets? What effects does neurostimulation have on brain networks beyond seizure control? How do we determine the best stimulation paradigm for an individual patient, and should it be open or closed loop? This session will examine how far we've come and where to go next in the rapidly growing field of epilepsy neuromodulation.
