Description

  • Strategies for intracranial pressure monitoring and lumbar drains
  • Quick tips to advance your neuro assessment skills
  • Neuro emergencies to keep on your radar

  • Stroke and young women: The story of 3 lives

  • Hope through research

Over the past 20 years, I have witnessed dramatic changes in the care of patients with neurosurgical problems. I have moved from feeling helpless to extremely encouraged by what we can do for our patients. Technology and pharmaceuticals have altered the course of many of these diseases. Many of our old practices have been “put to pasture”. We will look beyond the basics and explore areas that are less known. Every day new and exciting research provides us with novel treatments. We will explore new drugs, promising interventions and evidence that is emerging into practice. My goal is to equip you with tools to better identify problems and improve overall care on the frontline. It is my aspiration that you will leave the seminar energized and better prepared to care for patients with neurological problems.
