1st Conference: Different Persons of Dravet Syndrome is organized by Dravet Syndrome Association Croatia / Udruga Dravet Sindrom Hrvatska and will be held from Nov 07 - 09, 2019 at President Split, Split, Split-Dalmatia, Croatia. Description: Dravet syndrome is much more than an epilepsy syndrome. Patients with Dravet syndrome present a spectrum of both neurological and non-neurological symptoms. Disorders such as intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorders, behaviour and sleep problems are frequently reported, combined with non-neurological ones including gait disorders and cardiac rhythm abnormalities. A large number of paediatric and adult neurologists, but also other specialists (orthopedists, psychiatrist, occupational and speech therapy, etc.) are involved in the care of patients with such complex diseases as the Dravet syndrome. In order to offer optimal therapeutic options, improving the patient’s and family’s quality of life, the necessity of interaction and collaboration in the highest level must be met accordingly. It is the highlight of this Conference. Therefore the main goal of the Conference is to elucidate the “Different faces of Dravet syndrome”. This Conference will cover, in plenary sessions and round tables, several major topics such as the genetic spectrum of Dravet syndrome, real life therapy and treatment, communication between professionals and parents associations as well as the latest evidence from clinical trials. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
