11th Annual Jefferson Neurocritical Care Symposium - Virtual Meeting

February 4, 2022 to February 5, 2022

This interdisciplinary symposium focuses on new and practical issues facing healthcare professionals caring for the critically-ill neurological patient.

Day 1: Engage with expert faculty as they deliberate how to manage critically-ill neurological patients according to the most recent evidence and literature findings.

This year's symposium includes keynote presentations by Benjamin Abella, MD from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and Jose Ignacio Suarez, MD from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Attendees will also tailor their education by selecting one of two options during our four breakout sessions.

Day 2: Further enhance your skills through four practical workshops, reflecting real-life, patient cases faced by critical care practitioners. Attendees will assess their level of knowledge and performance in intense critical care situations through the following case scenarios:

  • Intracranial Pressure (ICP) Crisis

  • Status Epilepticus

  • Brain Death

  • Middle Cerebral Artery (MCA) Stroke

  • Targeted Temperature Management (TTM)

This innovative course will be of interest to all specialists working in the fields of emergency medicine, internal medicine, hospital medicine, neurology, critical care, and neurosurgery.
