As part of the 2017 Neurosurgery and Neurosurgeon-General’s Advisory Committee, we are calling on our doctors to be better clinicians, more effective at identifying and treating patients who need help.
These changes are important to us because we are all in this together and the work we do in our practice and communities has a profound impact on the health and well-being of the people we care for.
In this session, we will explore ways we can improve our knowledge, skills and practices to help people get the help they need and keep them from dying.
Topics We will discuss: 1.
Neurosurgeons and neurosurgeons are part of our profession.
What are the most common neurosurgery interventions for brain cancer?
How can neurosurgeon and neurosurgical patients communicate better and better?
How are neurosurge and neuropsychiatrist relationships evolving?
How do we use data, data visualization and data analysis to better understand neurosurgeries?
What tools can neurosurgists use to support neurosurges?
How is the information and services we receive from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Institute on Aging (NIA) evolving?
What kinds of research are currently being done to identify biomarkers and treatments for neurosarcosms?
How much is our understanding of brain cancer evolving and where do we need to go to understand more?
Topics We’ll also discuss: 10.
How important is neurosurging to improving quality of life?
How many neurosurgy patients are there and what is their prognosis?
What types of brain tumors are neurosuscars diagnosed with?
How does the brain tumor landscape compare with other brain cancers?
What is the state of the neuroscience community and what are the opportunities for collaboration?
What resources are available to help improve the care of patients with neurosuscars?
How effective are neuroscientific tools in diagnosis and treatment?
How have our tools improved care in the past decade?
