Course description

This clinically oriented course aims to foster intellectual interaction with leading experts in the NICU field. It will allow understanding the essential information needed to treat neurological/neurosurgical patients, including traumatic brain injury, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and intracranial hemorrhage.

The course target audience includes staff doctors or residents working in ICUs, as well as neurosurgeons and neurologists.

This "NeuroIntensive Care: Update 2021" is the first virtual edition of a previous course, the "NeuroIntensive Care: Update" successfully held for three consecutive years as a Summer School.

Unfortunately, its 2020 edition was cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We hence decided to move to the University of Milano - Bicocca's virtual platform and promote the e-learning version of our school.

Like its previous editions, it aims to build a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment. The course provides a consistent set of basic theoric knowledge and practical clinical scenarios to help with day-by-day patient management and an update on the latest best practices in treatment.

In 6 weeks, we will provide participants recorded lectures, updated bibliography, course materials, and assessment questionnaires on topics ranging from basic concepts to monitoring systems and treatment strategies in traumatic and non-traumatic neuro-emergencies.

Every week, for six consecutive weeks starting from January 11th, a single educational module will be released, and participants can take part in the course per their schedule. An assessment questionnaire will be administered at the end of each module to advance to the next level. With the completion of all modules, a certificate of attendance will be released.

Moreover, a weekly live session will allow the participants to interact directly with the expert speakers, and a live forum will be available to all participants to ask any question to the experts' team.

An University certificate will be issued at the end of teh course, once the online practical tests have been passed.
