A History of Innovation & Quality Care


Boston Children’s Hospital has been at the forefront of pediatric epilepsy research and care since the founding of the first comprehensive pediatric epilepsy treatment unit in 1944 by Dr. William Lennox.


In 1962, Dr. Cesare Lombroso succeeded Dr. Lennox as Chief of the Seizure Unit and EEG Laboratory at Boston Children’s, a position he held until 1988. Both of these physicians believed that the best results in children with seizures are achieved in a center that addresses simultaneously the medical, psychosocial, behavioral and family issues that impact their lives.  With this focus, the Seizure Unit at Boston Children’s Hospital grew to be a preeminent center for both treatment and clinical investigation.


State-of-the-art Education: The Lennox-Lombroso Pediatric Epilepsy Conference


The inaugural Lennox-Lombroso Pediatric Epilepsy Conference extends Boston Children’s tradition of excellence in continuing medical education to the field of childhood epilepsy diagnosis, management, and research. The course will cover a variety of topics including medical advances, discoveries and innovative technological approaches in epilepsy genetics, neurocritical care, computational neurophysiology, surgical procedures, and EEG ontogeny.


In addition to presenting the latest advances and innovations in epilepsy research and care, the course will provide the practitioner with clear guides in terms of how to apply knowledge in all domains of pediatric epilepsy. Core faculty are from the Division of Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology at Boston Children’s Hospital, and invited faculty have been selected to highlight and honor faculty alumni who continue to make great contributions to the field, including keynote speakers Gregory L. Holmes MD, successor to Dr. Lombroso and current Chair of Neuroscience at the University of Vermont; Mohamad Mikati MD, Chief of Pediatric Neurology at Duke University; and James J. Riviello, Jr. MD, Professor of Pediatric Neurology and Developmental Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine.


This course is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, clinician-scientists, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, psychologists, allied health professionals, residents and fellows who specialize or have an interest in: 


pediatric neurology

neurology

pediatric epileptology

epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology

neuropsychology 

primary care 

This course is also open to any patients, families, and advocates that wish to attend. 




Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

recognize the effects of seizures and spikes on the developing brain

identify high risk populations for seizures in the critical care unit and apply standardized EEG interpretation

select patients for epilepsy surgery including the rationale for different forms of invasive monitoring and technical approaches

identify the correct genetic test and translational opportunity for selected patients depending upon the clinical presentation
