About This Event
The devastating and disabling impact of Wernickes-Korsakoffs Syndrome makes prevention of this condition a key priority.
Malnutrition is often under-recognised but an important contributory cause of Wernickes Encephalopathy, Korsakoffs Amnesic Syndrome and other forms of Alcohol-Related Brain Injury.
This webinar will explore the identification and management of malnutrition in high risk populations and address best practice prevention. It will host a range of international speakers including Professor Leah Gramlach (Gastroenterologist, Physician Nutrition Specialist – University of Alberta), Dr Helen McMonagle (Alcohol Forum Ireland), Dr Kaanthan Jawathar (Consultant Psychiatrist – UK) and Elaine Neary (Clinical Specialist Dietician in Gastroenterology – Ireland)
