What will this session cover?

Medically unexplained symptoms may be a term that needs a new name as for some it is pejorative but in truth there are many people (one in three neurological referrals) with symptoms and disability for which no causative pathology may be found. These patients often fit poorly into disease-based care pathways and can be disproportionately demanding of resources. They need not however be heartsink cases.

The range of symptoms that present as MUS and their management or containment will be discussed.
