About this event
Thrive webinars and workshops are meticulously curated by brainstrust and hosted by leading experts to help you tackle the challenges that make life with a brain tumour so hard.
So that you can be more informed, more engaged, and cope better, you can now access brainstrust workshops online. Thrive events are more focussed than a Meet Up – if you are feeling lost or confused, need practical information and would like a deeper dive into specific aspects of life with a brain tumour, then Thrive events are for you.
This webinar will address:
- Why do people with some brain tumours have epilepsy? Can it develop at any point?
- What are the most common types of epilepsy that come with a brain tumour?
- How do I know if I have had a seizure? Sometimes my doctor says I haven’t had a seizure when I think I have.
- What should my caregiver do when I have a seizure? Should they always call an ambulance?
- Are there epilepsy triggers that I could avoid?
This webinar will be hosted by Dr Robin Grant.
Robin is a Consultant Neurologist with a special interest in brain tumours, specifically symptoms research and quality of life in neuro-oncology. He leads the Edinburgh Group, which has build an interest in clinical and laboratory studies related to tumour associated epilepsy, cognition, depression and fatigue.
