Event Overview
Welcome message:

Nurses are a crucial part of treatment and recovery of neuroscience patients. The Neuro Nursing Symposium offers a broad curriculum focusing on state-of-the-art evidence-based practices for nursing and other healthcare professionals who treat and care for neuroscience patients. The program will address the treatment and nursing care of the neuroscience patient from the emergency department through rehabilitation. The expert faculty will educate the audience about nursing issues related to neurological complications, hypothermia, stroke, epilepsy, rehabilitation and pharmacologic management of neuroscience patients. The goal of the program is to share the most innovative and evidenced-based clinical practices that have been implemented and are available to optimize patient outcomes throughout all areas of neuroscience.
