Course description

The Cape Town AONeuro Course—Neurotrauma covers the theoretical basis and practical principles for managing neurotrauma, emergency and planned procedures, addressing complications, and reconstructive surgery.

This course covers the current best strategies and considerations for managing neurotrauma patients. It features an international faculty of experts and is based on the competencies defined in AONeuro’s new curriculum in neurotrauma.

The course content is delivered using multiple methods. Comprehensive lectures concentrate on the understanding of core material. Interactive case presentations further deepen this knowledge and enrich the discussion in trauma management. Practical sessions teach the application of AO principles to the management of common injuries. Case-based discussions link the lecture material and practical skills with the clinical problems encountered in real practice.
