NeuroTrauma 2018: 3rd Joint Symposium of the International and National Neurotrauma Societies and AANS/CNS Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care

Event Date: August 11-16, 2018

Location: Westin Harbour Castle, Toronto, Canada

DescriptionTaking place at the Westin Harbour Castle in Downtown Toronto this year, the NeuroTrauma 2018 is coming to the City on August 11th-16th for its 3rd joint Symposium of the International and National NeuroTrauma Societies  and AANS/CNS Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care. Dr. Michael Fehlings, the local host, and the Local Organizing Committee are inviting you all and your trainees to attend.  “This will be a wonderful important occasion of sharing science, preclinical and clinical lessons, and visions for the future of neurotrauma research and care. This symposium has served as the premier forum for the exchange of ideas and information related to traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury (SCI) with a strong focus of the meeting to integrate clinical, translational, and basic science neurotrauma-related information. The format of the symposium will consist of informative discovery, translational, and clinical sessions and workshops, as well as programs for students and early career investigators. Plenary sessions, workshops, and poster sessions are being planned to focus on topics of current research and practice issues. A public lecture, patient perspective presentations, and networking opportunities will round out the program. The meeting will be co-hosted by the International & National Neurotrauma Society and the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care. This combination of expertise allows for presentations that integrate state-of-the-art clinical, translational and basic science information on the consequences of damage to the nervous system. This is an exciting time in neurotrauma research and care and we hope to see you in Toronto for the Neurotrauma 2018 Symposium.”

NeuroTrauma 2018: Pre-Symposium Neuro Course

Event Date: August 11, 2018 

Location: Westin Harbour Castle, Toronto, Canada

DescriptionTaking place at the Westin Harbour Castle in Downtown Toronto this year, the NeuroTrauma 2018 is coming to the City on August 11th-16th for its 3rd joint Symposium of the International and National NeuroTrauma Societies  and AANS/CNS Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care. Dr. Michael Fehlings, the local host, is inviting you all to attend the Pre-SymposiumNeuro course which also has CME credits. "It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Neuro Course as a pre-course for the 3rd Joint Symposium of the International and National Neurotrauma Societies and AANS/CNS Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care. Such a great learning opportunity would not be possible without the generous support provided by Global Neuro, NREF, and AOSpine. These organizations are truly at the forefront of advancing neuro care worldwide. By providing neuro care specialists with excellent opportunities to share knowledge, network and innovate; courses such as these are invaluable for neurosurgeons and members of associated disciplines. We have done our best to create a course that covers a range of topics relevant to TBI and SCI care. The effects of these debilitating conditions on patient quality of life are well known, and this course serves as a means to engage you, the attendee, to enhance neurocritical knowledge and ensure patients are receiving the best care possible. We look forward to a day of learning, networking and great discussions. From both of us, welcome to the Neuro Course and we hope it is a great experience."
