The symposium also features the return of Hot Topics: different viewpoints on management issues, The Patient Experience: neurological illness from the patient’s perspective; Cross-Fire Debates where the audience will vote to determine the winners; and Simulation Labs which are hands on workshops in smalls groups with experts.
