More than 50 Swedish and Egyptian neurology specialists participated to a seminar on 2 February to discuss recent developments and best practices of Swedish neurology and neuro rehabilitation and how it could be applied in the context of the Egyptian healthcare system.
The seminar incorporated key elements of new and current practices of neurological care in Sweden, with focus on new treatments and research updates from Karolinska Institute, one of Europe’s largest and most prestigious medical universities.
Leading Swedish experts from the world of neurology and neuro-rehabilitation also covered topics related to Multiple Sclerosis Therapy and Sweden’s models for rehabilitation centres and medical services.
Swedish Ambassador to Egypt, Charlotta Sparre, opened the event, followed by presentations given by Professor Sten Fredrikson (Karolinska Institute), Professor Per Ljungman (Karolinska Institute and Karolinska University Hospital), Dr. Sabahudin Bjelak (Senior Consultant Neurology, Chief Medical Officer Rehab Station, Praktikertjänst AB), Mr. Jonas Skoldberg (CEO, Rehab Station, Praktikertäjnst AB) and Mr. Michael Nordh Grate (CEO, Stockholm Care AB).
The seminar was organised at the Embassy of Sweden in Cairo in collaboration with Business Sweden and Stockholm Care, as part of the Swedish-Egyptian continuous collaboration in the field of healthcare. Last year, a delegation from the Egyptian health sector visited Stockholm to be introduced to Sweden’s innovative solutions in the healthcare sector and to discuss business opportunities and partnerships with key stakeholders in the field.
