Program Description: 

This is a multi-disciplinary case-based conference that includes physicians and APPs from the multiple subspecialities involved in the care of critically ill neurological patients.  The cases presented during this conference have allowed us to review and update the audience on most current management guidelines for important neurocritical care topics such as severe traumatic brain injury, management of post anoxic brain injury, acute ischemic stroke. The inputs during this multidisciplinary conference from the various subspecialists also lead to improvements and updates to the CHW guidelines for the above mentioned conditions.
