Our mission is to improve the knowledge, skills and performance of all practitioners involved in the management of the neurosurgical patient.

The course is lecture and simulation based, and aims to clarify, consolidate and enhance the practice of management of the neurosurgical patient.

Lectures are delivered by Regional and National experts in the fields of Neurosurgery, Neuroradiology, Neuroanaesthesia and Neuro Intensive Care.

Simulation is employed as a tool to reinforce the knowledge, skills and attitudes, including human factors, required for safe practice in management of the neurosurgical patient.

Scenarios covered include:
– Immediate management of the head injured patient
– Venous air embolism
– Subarachnoid haemorrhage associated vasospasm
– Raised intracranial pressure in the Intensive Care Patient
– Transfer to definitive care centre
