Our next Nordic Facial Nerve Meeting will take place the 9th and 10th of December 2021 in Uppsala. As previous editions, this is a multidisciplinary meeting with the aim of gather different specialties treating facial paralysis in Nordic Countries, discuss latest updates in the field, stimulate discussion and exchange of ideas in benefit of our patients. 

This year we have arranged an exciting program with combination of online and onsite lectures with top-class invited international speakers from United States, United Kingdom and Austria. 

We proudly announce, that we for the first time will have a separate pre-meeting on Thursday afternoon with focus on physiotherapy and facial rehabilitation, for interested Physiotherapists and other interested paramedics (for example Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists) and nurses. We are planning to gather specialists in the facial rehabilitation field, to share where we work, how we work, what methods for examination and treatment we are using and we want to discuss how we can cooperate in a future and maybe create a common platform for facial rehabilitation issues. The focus of the second day will be facial reanimation techniques and management of synkinesis.
