Matthew's Friends KetoCollege training for Health Care Professionals is a 3 day meeting, with Day 1 Medical Masterclass, Days 2 and 3 Dietetic Masterclass. Held in Sussex, 50 mins from central London, 19-21 June, this year sees the 3rd successive year of this CPD event.
Matthew's Friends support families and health care professionals in all aspects of Ketogenic Dietary Therapies and are the co-organisers of the bi-annual Global Symposium for Ketogenic Therapies (2018 venue South Korea).
Ketogenic Dietary Therapies have evolved quickly since the 2008 trial from Great Ormond Street Hospital (Professor Cross et al), which proved the efficacy of the Ketogenic Diet for the treatment of refractory paediatric epilepsy. Matthew's Friends today support hundreds of families in the UK and many more overseas. Most recently they work towards making Ketogenic Dietary Therapies available to adults with refractory epilepsy, as an option where medications have failed. The charity also works alongside the Astro Brain Tumour Fund in treating brain tumour patients, alongside standard of care treatment, in our Matthew's Friends Clinics based in Surrey; working towards further research in this important area.
