ERN-RND provides educational webinars on rare neurological and neuromuscular diseases - in collaboration with the European Reference Network for Rare Neuromuscular Diseases (EURO-NMD) and the European Academy of Neurology (EAN).

The goal is to share knowledge on rare neurological, movement and neuromuscular disorders via a series of webinars presented by expert members of both networks. The webinars will treat topics related to the disease groups covered by the two networks and alternate between adult and paediatric contents. Various aspects from more general  clinical features, examination, disease diagnosis, medical interventions and disease management to more specific ones as use of scales or imaging will be discussed.

The webinars are for clinical specialists (neurologists and paediatric neurologists), residents and other paramedical staff involved in the care of neurological patients.
