Sooma Webinars for Estonian Healthcare Professionals


Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) therapies for the treatment of depression have recently been granted reimbursement status by the Estonian healthcare administration. That means that tDCS therapies are now at the same level as antidepressant medication and other neuromodulation therapies. 

With the aim of helping Estonian healthcare professionals to gain a more in-depth understanding of the capabilities and opportunities that tDCS presents for clinical practice, we are organizing a series of webinars to take a look at tDCS therapies from different perspectives.
