28 April, 2015 - UCLP Centre for Neurorehabilitation symposium: goal-setting in neurorehabilitation - consensus and controversies

Time: -

During this meeting we will revisit the controversies and areas of consensus identified in a goal-setting meeting held in 2009 (results published in Clinical Rehabilitation 2009;23(4):334-44). We will hear from experts in the field, including Richard Siegert and William Levack, authors of the recently published book, ‘Rehabilitation Goal Setting: Theory, Practice and Evidence’ , and identify how far we have progressed and what is yet to be done. Before the meeting starts, participants will be asked to complete the first round of the Delphi and to complete it twice more during the course of the meeting. This meeting provides an excellent opportunity to update on current thinking, to consider your own experience in the context of the theory, and to gain a sense of future direction. CPD points will be applied for.

13 May, 2015 - Division of Psychiatry seminar: Gene*environment interaction: scientific hypothesis or truism?

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Organised by UCL Division of Psychiatry

There are an increasing number of studies that have investigated gene environment interaction, prompted by Caspi’s 2003 Science paper about the 5HT transporter polymorphism and stress. I will discuss what is meant by interaction, the claims made by the g*e proponents, and review the literature. I will take a critical stance and will question the value of this research, arguing it is based upon a misunderstanding of statistical interaction together with methods that increase type 1 errors.

24 June, 2015 - NeuroTrials Day

Time: -

In most areas of medicine it is the results from randomised controlled trials that ultimately decide whether or not a potential treatment has a place in the management of a clinical condition. Brain science is no different. Advances in the treatment of conditions such as multiple sclerosis, stroke and epilepsy have ultimately been determined by successful clinical trials. This NeuroTrials day will describe the design and implementation of all phases of trial. Uniquely, it will be from the twin viewpoints of clinicians and statisticians involved in designing and carrying out clinical trials. As such it will be appropriate for clinicians (e.g. neurologists and neurosurgeons), and other health professional in both the public and private sectors, at all levels of seniority. The roles of the clinical research network, clinical research facility and clinical trials unit will also be discussed.
