What is PET?
Paediatric Epilepsy Training (PET) courses provide training for all health professionals diagnosing and managing children with an epilepsy or seizure disorder. PET1 is for anyone who sees any child who has had a seizure or 'funny do'. PET2, PET3 & PET EEG have been developed for doctors managing children with seizures.
What are PET course contents?
Each course has been developed to meet the specific needs of different health professionals. For some professionals PET1 is all you need; for others PET2, 3 & EEG will be appropriate. See Which Course to find out which course is appropriate for you. The courses contain a variety of educational formats including lectures, small group workshops, quizzes, role plays, debates, literature reviews and case discussion.
There are many opportunities within the courses to consider ‘grey cases’, share ‘experience in the real world’, and debate ‘the evidence’.
Where do PET courses run?
PET courses run regularly throughout the UK, Ireland and India, and annually in the Gulf States, Nepal and Myanmar.
Who is involved?
PET courses have been written and are managed by the British Paediatric Neurology Association (BPNA). There are usually about 36 attendees at each course with a faculty of 6 Consultant Paediatric Neurologists and Paediatricians with a special interest in epilepsy.
