Join us this Friday for the Acute Care Neurology and Neurosurgery: From the ER to the OR to the NCCU course at Swedish Cherry Hill. After completion of this course, participants will be better able to evaluate and manage acute care issues in hospitalized neurological and neurosurgical patients. This course will provide a framework for recognition and management of commonly encountered problems in acute care neurology and neurosurgery.
This course is intended for any clinician caring for acutely ill neurological and neurosurgical patients and will be particularly beneficial to adult hospitalists, nocturnists, pulmonologists, emergency medicine physicians and advanced practice clinicians.
Hospitalist medicine is a rapidly growing discipline. Hospital-based specialists have emerged in a number of disciplines, including neuroscience. However, there remain a limited number of specialty providers available for 24-hour hospital coverage of neurological and neurosurgical patients. Night and weekend care of these patients is often provided by internists or hospitalists. Hence, there is a need to train internists and hospitalists in the recognition and management of commonly-encountered issues in acute-care neurology and neurosurgery.
