Critical Care Canada Forum Neurocritical Care Pre-conference Workshop 2018

Neurocritical Masterclass Looking Ahead in Neurocritical Care: Improving Prognostication and Outcomes

November 6, 2018
Sheraton Centre, Toronto / Willow Room, Mezzanine level
This course is endorsed by Canadian Neurocritical Care Society

Overview

This preconference workshop will provide key updates in the rapidly moving area of neurocritical care. This year’s workshop will focus on the up-to-date approach to neuroprognostication, advances in neuroimaging and neuromonitoring, and review best practice in neuroprognostication and acute ischemic stroke, spinal cord injury, cardiac arrest and traumatic brain injury.

This workshop will be delivered by international leaders in neurocritical care to ensure you receive high-quality updates that will impact your practice.

Our expert speakers will complement recent guidelines with practical tips and relevant case examples that will make even the most challenging aspects of neurocritical care both clear and accessible. The workshop will feature all the latest research developments you need to know for the year ahead, and will support your continued professional education and development needs.

At the end of each session, there will be time to have your questions answered by world-leading neurocritical care speakers. You’ll leave the day with updated clinical knowledge that will help you maintain and improve your daily practice, enhance patient confidence and improve patient safety.

  2. Dedicated question time with the speakers — get advice from world-leading experts on how to manage a specific patient or tricky clinical situations.

Goals

  1. Enhance clinicians’ understanding of unique pathophysiology in acute brain and spinal cord injuries which impacts management, prognostication and outcomes.

  2. Evaluate novel neuroimaging and neuromonitoring techniques and how these are integrated into modern, evidence-based ICU management of neurocritically ill patients.

  3. Expand clinicians’ knowledge of the management and interventions which impact outcome in acute ischemic stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and cardiac arrest.

Target Audience

  1. Physicians who care for patients with neurological emergencies, acute stroke and brain hemorrhage, acute brain injury, coma and neurological disorders that require Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) evaluation and management.

  2. Medical providers from a broad array of disciplines including Intensive Care, Emergency Medicine, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Anesthesia, and Neuro-Intensive Care backgrounds are all encouraged to attend.

  3. Other healthcare providers such as PAs, APNs, EMS personnel, and allied health providers who care for patients with neurological emergencies, or patients in a Neuro ICU or ICU are also welcome.
