KetoConference 2023

Tuesday 13th June 


Meeting Objectives:

KetoConference provides an opportunity for healthcare professionals to gather, review and share key research, guidelines and clinical perspectives in the use of Ketogenic Dietary Therapy (KDT) in epilepsy and other neurological conditions.

The KetoConference scientific programme has been developed in conjunction with healthcare professionals from the UK.

Anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) are effective in controlling epileptic seizures for about 70% of patients however, 30% of patients are drug resistant. The resulting complex epilepsy requires consideration of alternative management options. KDT is a robust and recognised management option for those failing to respond to medication.

Despite this, awareness of the efficacy of KDT remains low in both medical professionals and patients.

KetoConference aims to raise awareness, share practice and educate healthcare professionals practicing in this field by providing highly regarded scientific content as well as practical advice and ways of implementation.

After attending the meeting participants will have a better understanding of and have practical solutions to optimise their clinical practice in the following aspects of KDT:

  • KDT overview
  • KIWE Trial results & the KDT registry
  • The KDT in palliative care
  • Transition to adult services
  • The KDT in pregnancy and lactation
