Imaging, Monitoring & Protecting the Newborn Brain 12-13 May 2022
12 - 13 May 2022
Incorporating cranial ultrasound imaging and aEEG monitoring.
A two-day course providing an introduction to neonatal brain imaging, monitoring and neuroprotection.
Who is it for: Neonatologists, Paediatric Neurologists, Neonatal ANNP’s and anyone else with an interest in neonatal neurology at all levels of training. The course will assume no background knowledge, but there will be opportunity, particularly in the workshops to explore topics in more detail.
Structure of the course: After a basic overview of brain development and neonatal neurological examination, day one focuses on the preterm infant; day two on the term infant. The morning sessions are lecture based and afternoon sessions will consist of workshops and case histories, with an emphasis on real life practical issues.
Pre-course reading material will be sent to all delegates ahead of the course.
