It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Neuro Course as a pre-course for the 3rd Joint Symposium of the International and National Neurotrauma Societies and AANS/CNS Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care. Such a great learning opportunity would not be possible without the generous support provided by Global Neuro, NREF, and AOSpine. These organizations are truly at the forefront of advancing neuro care worldwide. By providing neuro care specialists with excellent opportunities to share knowledge, network and innovate; courses such as these are invaluable for neurosurgeons and members of associated disciplines. We have done our best to create a course that covers a range of topics relevant to TBI and SCI care. The effects of these debilitating conditions on patient quality of life are well known, and this course serves as a means to engage you, the attendee, to enhance neurocritical knowledge and ensure patients are receiving the best care possible. We look forward to a day of learning, networking and great discussions. From both of us, welcome to the Neuro Course and we hope it is a great experience.
Dr. Michael Fehlings & Dr. Geoff Manley
This course covers the current best strategies and considerations for managing brain and spine trauma patients and is based on competencies defined in Global Neuro’s and AOSpine curriculums. The content is delivered using multiple methods. Comprehensive lectures concentrate on the understanding of core material. Interactive case presentations further deepen this knowledge and enrich the discussion in trauma management.
Case-based discussions link the lecture material and practical skills with the clinical problems encountered in clinical practice.
State of the Art on the Clinical Management of Brain and Spine Trauma course covers the theoretical basis and principles for managing traumatic brain and spine injuries and making proper decisions in the complicated cases.
